Just recently moved here from Sweden. I've been out with this guy, nice restaurant, but when the waiter came he ordered from himself and then for me.
I mean I told him what I wanted before so it wasn't a big deal and I didn't say anything. But I thought it was a bit weird. He also insisted on paying the whole bill, that's not really common in Sweden either, but he has the money, so I figured that's fine too

Paying is common on a first date.
Ordering for a woman is a very traditional move. My grandfather might have ordered for a woman on a date without asking what she wanted. That's not really done now. My wife likes it when I order for her, but she would have told me what she wanted.
Given you told him, he was probably just trying to be chivalrous.0
