If you have decided that poly is a non-negotiable "bottom line" for you, and the other person says "no poly, no way", then in some ways you are saving time by not putting energy into dating someone that is going to be ending it as soon as they find out.

It is very disappointing the number of people for whom poly has that sort of picture, but it is what it is.
