If you do it too early, you stand the risk of giving more important to your HIV status than need be; on the other hand if you leave the disclosure just before an intimate night, your partner may feel cheated and hurt.
There is no perfect time for such a disclosure and it will depend on the level of companionship and attraction in your relationship as well as the personality of your partner.
