I found it a fascinating read because it showed such a different mindset. Even though I assumed for many years that I was monogamous and now still don't entirely buy in to the "hardwired for poly" vs. "hardwired for mono" school of thought, I found the thought processes of the mono half of the conversation quite strange. Again though, that could just be because the individual involved is a non-representative example.
from what I know it is pretty close to bang on what I have heard from the monogamous people in the workshops I have presented on mono-poly relationships. Each to their own I guess.
