Out-of-context, I can see why this is gross and stalkerish, yeah.
In-context, it’s not. Hazel does really like him and they both know this, but she’s trying to distance herself from him because she thinks she’s going to die first and doesn’t want to hurt him. Augustus is picking up on that and telling her that that’s not necessary; he likes her already and so she may as well just be honest with herself and do what makes them both happy.
I might be more open to the anti-John-Green stuff if it didn’t so often involve twisting and taking things out-of-context just to fulfill people’s weirdly-intense hatred for a fairly-benign Internet personality and YA author. Again, he’s actually apologized for most of the stuff he’s said that was fucked-up in context, and even tried to reverse some of it. This grasping-at-straws is just making it harder for people to take any negative stuff about him seriously.
