Met this guy online. He said he was 28 but he seemed mature so I gave him my phone number. I'm 5 years older. We ended up going on a couple of dates and hit it off. After the first 3 days he confesses he's not 28 but 35. This kind of throws me off because I'm actually happy to hear he's older than me but I told him how my last relationship started off with lies. I also asked why he would lie about something so stupid because if a man can lie about small things then what about other things. He said he was looking for a younger woman claiming that they are more likely to want children rather than a woman in her 30s. I still find the lie and the reason for the lie kind of weird. He said he just found me really attractive and really likes me and doesn't want this lie to stop me from talking to him. Should I forget about this lie and continue to date him if I like him or is this lie a huge Red Flag?

Honestly no, a relationship based on lies will never be stable and you will never be able to trust him.
Id leave while the leaving is good. Age is a stupid thing to lie about, his reason for lying is even worse.
