You shouldn’t put effort in just because he is. Do you even like him enough to put that much in to meeting for the first time? That’s a better question

That’s kind of a red flag, maybe because it’s paired with trying to make you go to the game. He might have something going on with someone else and is using the trip to see a game as a cover….

Nah, if you don’t like him at a game and aren’t into football it’ll be even worse. Do not feel obligated to do anything ever, the ball is in your court…

I wouldn’t do it. I think a dinner/drinks would be nice to get to know him better and see if the spark continues.

The Dallas game is about HIM not you (and you’re tagging along as a companion). He’s chosen an activity HE wants to do. Think about what YOU want to do. Did he even consider or ask if you’d be down for that?
