To think Toby from This is Us is creepy as hell?

To be fair, I'm only on episode 3, but if Toby's behaviour so far is meant to be romantic, I really doubt it's going to get any better (and I'm guessing it's going to get a lot worse). He's controlling. He's creepy. He doesn't listen to Kate and performs all these grand, creepy gestures. He says he and Kate should be as close as she is to her twin brother (after like three dates!). There were so many red flags I could barely stand to watch, but when Kate told her brother how creepy Toby was, he unilaterally decided she couldn't move to New York with him so she could apologize to Creepster McCreepy. Wtf??

Everyone else I've talked to about this thinks I'm nuts. "Noooo, Toby's the boyfriend everyone dreams of!" What? No. Toby is the boyfriend who gets dumped when he proposes on the second date.

AIBU? Please someone tell me they agree with me!

He does get a bit better as the series goes on but yeah creepy is what I would've described him as at first, then possessive. I kinda liked him towards the end although he's still not my favourite. He did do wonders for Kate and makes her realise she has her own life to live and doesn't have to be in her brothers shadow forever which has a knock on effect for Kevin as well.

Thank you for (at least kind of!) agreeing with me! grin

I'm probably biased because I've had a stalker before. That kind of behaviour makes me run for the hills.
