Going without a persons company for ONE day out of each week should not be traumatic for a fully functional adult. He should definitely read some poly material so that he can figure out if he is interested in adjusting his worldview to a degree that would make your arrangement work.
If he doesn't drive, doesn't have friends, has nothing whatsoever to do with his time... he should fix that...

Word. It's nice to look out for your partner, help and guide them whenever you can. However, there's a difference between being a good friend and coddling someone who is putting forward no effort to work through their own issues. I don't know that this is the issue here, but it bears considering.
