Bipolar: When to tell a date

I met a wonderful man who is smitten with me, and I with him. We have been talking on the phone for two weeks (we met online), and have had four fabulous, fun dates. He expresses that he really likes me. He is 37 and I am 30. He has been married before, and I asked him why they got divorced, and he explained to me that she developed bipolar disorder I with schizophrenic tendencies about 3 years into their marriage, and she could not get stabilized. She had multiple trips to the psych ward while he was in med school, and it was really hard on him. He was studying to be an anesthesiologist and the final straw was when his wife called his residency hospital and told them he was poisoning her with intravenous drugs. Well, that would all be fine and good, except...I have bipolar II. [more inside]

If I tell you I'm bipolar, will that make you run away?

Mental illness/dating filter: Four years ago, I broke up with a great guy (possibly the right guy, definitely the wrong time). We've had contact maybe three times since then. Two years ago, at age 38, I was diagnosed as bipolar. Now he wants to have dinner. How much does he need to know about my illness and how do I explain it? [more inside]
