I wouldn't use those words specifically when talking to your partner. Poly isn't any more progressive than any other love style; it is merely a different approach or nature. I know what my reaction to that statement would be and I have a great appreciation for polyamory.
Best of luck...is your friend male or female? And yes, that does make a difference in a lot of cases.
