Cheating is cheating, poly is poly, grey area is whatever you decide it is. Hiding things is not great. Really not great.
Is being poly a need for you?
To answer your question, is poly a need for me. Since I have never been able to experience a true poly relationship, I don't know. Based on my history, I do know that I have never really been exclusive to any one person. I like connecting with multiple people on an intimate level.
If he wanted monogamy, would that be the end of your relationship?
If he wasn't for the idea. I would probably just continue doing what I have been doing for the past 10yrs. Since like I said, I have never been "truly" monogamous.
But like you said hiding things is not great, really not great.
