I'd hazard that all men that identify as monogamous would have a negative reaction to finding out the person they are dating is not monogamous. There are plenty of European poly people though. Just like there are poly people on every continent. And actually, I'd argue that the "norm" these days is to casually date multiple people and then to settle with one.
