So do you think you can still keep things your ex gave you? or would you rather throw them all away already?

hehe i have his photos but i deleted them =( i just do not want to remember him anymore. i just wanted to remember what he did and that he will always be the kind of person that taught me to be careful i guess and that i should not be too trusting.

If it was a long-term, serious relationship then I do keep some things like photos and letters. I also have a ring and a necklace from an ex that I am still good friends with. All my other jewelry that came from exes I got rid of. I still have everything from my most recent ex. He never really bought me anything but he gave me some of his personal things that I'm keeping because we have a daughter together and I will give these things to her someday.

Hi chiyosan, there might be somethings like letters and photos are kept somewhere deep in the closet or drawers. I totally don't have any idea for those are things that have been there for ages. May be I would dispose them when having a big house clearance. My husband and I have our respective places to keep our stuffs. We respect each other as well as our personal belongings too. He doesn't have any interest to know my past history. He minds and value the present moment we are together. Don't take old stuffs too hard. Let the past be the past. We won't let the old stuffs to ruin our super days. We cherish the present time currently Happy posting

hi there, i think because of my anger towards him, i have deleted all photos of us (and there were hundreds of them!) I have to just delete photos and anything that would remind me of him and his lies. =( i do not know maybe i am just feeling like this because he cheated on me but then I guess i just have to forget and move on the way i think it is going to work.

aha, well yes that makes sense actually. =) i mean with my ex whenever i see their photos and even the gifts i have received from them i no longer think of them after that. i would remember for a while but then i would not think of them anymore. =) i agree with you that we ought to just cherish and enjoy the gifts. hehe it was a different case though for my recent ex because i was so mad at him that i have to literally throw the things he gave me to his face. :D hahaha thank you for your response and have a good day. :D cheers

I have a ring from my ex, but i don`t wear it, and my actual boyfriend is ok with that, because he knows i love him, and this ring doesn`t mean anything for me besides the fact that is a simple ring. If this thing would bother my boyfriend i would throw it away.

yes exactly,i used to keep the things that was given by my EX..It just remind me of our past,the laughters and tears we've shared..i kept it,as a sort of having the term"remembrance" or remembering that someone who's been a part of me by a short period of time,but leaves thousands of memories..

I still keep things that given by my ex-boyfriend well. Although the breakup broke my heart and it spent me long time recovering from it. But it is still a part of my past memory. I still cherished it and I don't want to throw everything away. I love China

The only thing that I kept from my ex-girlfriend is a handkerchief. It has been kept for many years, but now I have no idea where it is put though I know it is still somewhere in my house. It is not that easy to totally forget about the past relationship though I have a happy family of my own. It is the past history of my life as everyone has a different history. Take care.

Yes I still keep things given by ex-boyfriend. It's hidden in a cabinet though. I get to look at it sometimes when I remember him.

I still have my engagement and wedding rings from my first marriage. I will sell them one day. And of course I still have our wedding pictures. I can't unring that bell and pretend that part of my life never happened. But I don't believe I have any other gifts from my EX (the only EX I have). I have a memory box in which I keep all the cards my present husband ever gave me and tons of stuffed animals lined up on top of our headboard, and lots of jewelry too. Not sure I would get rid of any of it if my marriage were to end but then, I'm not planning on that ever happening.
