Another possibility is that you came on too strong in general, not just with the poly. A lot of people, guys especially, can get a little scared about getting caught up in something too quickly. It could be that bringing up poly made it obvious that you were trying to get in a relationship with him, and maybe he was only ready to date you and see if it led to something more.
