If that be the case, you could tell him you've decided to live polyamorously, and he can support your decision or not support it. Some mono/poly relationships do succeed, but your situation is your own.
I hope Polyamory.com is helpful in giving you ideas of how to navigate the uncertain waters you're sailing in. Let us know of your thoughts, questions, or concerns.
I agree that you just have to be yourself in the end.
I agree. At this point he is adamant that he would not want to be physical with anyone else. Previously though, he has dabbled in emotional connections with people. I think given the right environment he may be more open than he realizes.
It looks like with all the variety of people here it should be a great growth experience. Gets very lonely to be so different from those around you. Each day wanting to just scream out, "yeah, I am different, YOU have to learn to deal with me instead of it being the other way around!"
