He is mono with no interest in a poly relationship what so ever. Which makes me sad of course. We have grown apart over the last few years as I feel alienated for even suggesting it. I own my feelings though as I surpressed my nature and thought I could be happy in a mono relationship. Its my own fault for settling. It's a new year though and time to start loving myself enough to make positive changes. By my stating I was lonely, what I had meant was that i dont have any poly friends locally to talk to and it's a lonely path to navigate when you are with a mono partner who doesnt understand in the least. Being a part of an online community should help a bit with that and maybe give me hope that my fantasies could be a reality some day. Cheers!
