This level of truth ("disclosure") is what serious poly folk are shooting at. Or maybe it's just what real lovers (in the sense of people in love, not the cheapened sense of that word) should hold as their ideal. "They" call it "vulnerability," and when both (or more) parties welcome such "disclosures" with empathy, compassion, tenderness, understanding..., You're in luck! (If they are creeps, your luck just ran out.)
I had a similar occasion with one of my sweeties, recently. I'm one of the lucky ones.
