I've had men want to "get it all out there" in the first couple of dates, and while I understand it, it kind of kills the romance for me. First of all, it's a date, not a job interview, and second of all, at that point, I don't know all the good stuff about you yet that's going to help me overlook the other stuff.
I just say what's on my mind. If the subject comes up I talk about it, if it doesn't come up, it doesn't come up until it looks like something should be said.
