Yep, it could work, for another month or two..and then I imagine you'd really want to know what was happening and then you'd be miserable.

I don't think you would be unsuccessful if you were dating a guy who introduced his partners to each other, and if he dated people who were interested in at least attempting a friendly relationship with each other, but a man who is trying to hide or keep his partners from knowing what is really going on is not going to find much success, and being one of his partners is not ever going to be easy. Truth is, maybe he's too unsure about his identity to stand firm in it, I know even my husband (20+ years poly) can feel awkward about developing feelings for others - but really, objectively I'd avoid people who aren't upfront with everybody and feeling positive about what they want be it poly or anything else.
