This comes down to some dynamics being more possible than others. Not all poly relationships are continually open..hence the term polyfidelous. A mono, such as myself is comfortable in this type of dynamic.
The poly person would also have to be prepared to not follow every relationship "whim" they may feel and weigh the options of what people in thier life offer.
It's a two way street but one with challenges to everyone involved.
