I take them at their word and stop pursuing them romantically. My SO does as well, but he tries to educate.

Accepting it is a start. Conflicted emotions are fine but he can handle a "no thanks".

One for now. We're open (he's actively looking, I'm not) for potential. As for successfully dating mono, yes. I did in my last relationship for about a year before it went haywire, and in my current for the past four years.
