I see it as a good thing to meet different people, get to know them, and not jump into an exclusive relationship with the first person you meet. As long as he was honest about it and didn't have a problem with me seeing other people as well, then it's fine with me.
That said, difficulties can arise. For example, just because I'm okay with it wouldn't mean that the other women would be okay with it. I wouldn't want to be caught up in any drama from the other women. Also, it might be difficult if down the road I decided I wanted to be exclusive with him and he didn't want to, or if in the end, he decided he wanted to be exclusive with someone other than me (that in itself would hurt, but it would hurt even more if I couldn't remain friends with him).
If I did date a guy who didn't want to be exclusive, I would hope that he would handle it maturely. For example, being honest with everyone he was dating and keeping us separate (if any of the women were the type to start drama), not breaking off a date with me to see one of the other girls, not leading me on to think that he liked me more than the other girls if he didn't really feel that way, letting me know if things were becoming more serious with one of the other women (i.e. thinking about becoming exclusive with her), etc.0
