There are many reasons for this. .
As with any relationship, things can only advance as quickly as the "slowest" person involved, else it's precariously balanced and likely to tumble apart at any moment.
When speaking of various forms of non-monogamy...it ain't poly if you're just fucking around.
While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.
