The problem is with your launch services database, basically a lookup in 
the system’s database (by mate) does not reveal where TextMate.app is 
located on your system.

To reset the database run this command (one line):

-kill -seed {,~}/Applications{,/Utilities}

If you have applications in other locations, you can add the paths to 
the end of the line.

After you reset the database, I suggest you launch TextMate via Finder, 
as I think this marks the application as having been explicitly launched 
by the user, so it won’t warn when indirectly opening TextMate by e.g. 
opening a text file.
