Default That awkward conversation

I'm new to poly. I've been wanting to try it for years and FINALLY have found a person that I care about who is willing to give it a go. I don't think he is completely sure what he's getting involved in... he's been in an open relationship before but it was a don't-ask-don't-tell kind of situation that ultimately was the cause of its ending.

So when I have to tell him, hey I met a guy, we're going to go out, it's awkward. Very awkward. Does anyone have any suggestions for making it less so? We are trying to be totally honest. It's hard to find that balance between full disclosure and being considerate of the other person's feelings.
