I think I would try to work in the concept we talk about - i.e. "Fullness".
I think there is a percentage mono people that don't necessarily struggle with the concept of poly from a theoretical basis as much as they can't see it being applicable to them because of their own lower 'fill point'.
Does that make sense ?
I think Mon is one of those so if I'm fuzzy here he may be able to elaborate some.
I think this is one of the sticking points that you have to get through. Many mono people fall into the trap of feeling insufficient when a partner says they want/need more - be it social interaction, affection, sex, love etc. When in reality it's really just a variation in 'fill points'.
