Fair enough. I give him credit for the honesty. But as long as he can't control being a shithead, I would pull back. If you don't, you may wind up being the emotional punching bag.
I totally understand your thoughtfulness with respect to not wanting to label. You can't just jump in and say, "we're poly," because four different people will have four different points of view, etc.
Hang in there.
