My longterm boyfriend and I decided to start doing polyamory together a few months ago. We each started dating someone around the same time (his date was someone new to his life and mine was a poly friend we’ve known for less than a year).

My boyfriend wasn’t sure about trying poly but gave it his best go. Suffice to say, my experiences have gone really well and his has left him heartbroken and feeling like poly is not good for him. He wants me to end it with the person I am currently dating, even though we are taking things as slow as we possibly can. I’m not sure what to do. Any advice?
