Good point. Maybe boyfriend doesn't know the word "monoamorous?"

Sometimes OP uses "mono" as the abbreviation where I would write "monoamorous". "Monoamorous" to me is the capacity/desire to love only one person at a time.

Other times OP uses "mono" to abbreviate for "monogamous." "Monogamous" to me is a relationship structure where it is two people in relationship to just each other.

A monoamorous person could choose be in either a monogamous structure or in a polyamorous "V" structure or similar and be fine. They have their "One Sweetie" to be loving either way.

A monoamorous AND monogamous person is only going to want to be in a monogamous structure. The would not be ok in polyship configurations.
