Just be honest with him...tell him why you took so long to tell him and why you thought that way...but talk to him over dinner or in a letter just when its you 2 though
I've had BPD since I was 9 years old and even now my hubby still finds it hard. But be willing to answer any questions he may have
Yes, honesty is best. Remember, your condition is a big part of what makes you....well, you. He was attracted to that before he new. It would be considerate to explain what possible symptyms could arise or aren't likely to arrise, so he knows and isn't blind sided if you have an episode. Don't make too big of a deal of it, though. If he is truly interested in you, he'll hang around to see how things work out. Good luck :)
