Photos of Exes

Is it just me... or is it completely inappropriate to leave pictures of ex-boyfriends/girlfriends, fiances, husbands/wives, up on Facebook or Myspace pages? I've been dating someone for almost a year and his ex-fiance is kind of crazy and I completely don't trust her, mostly because she has been spreading lies since they broke up. I just found out that she still has pictures of my boyfriend on her Myspace with captions such as "Real Love", "Marriage Picture" (even though they were never married), as well as other captions. Plus, she has pictures of his kids on there as well... all making it look like they are a happy family even though they have been split for over a year and a half. She has many current pictures from the past year so I know she's been on there checking stuff... but no pictures of her current boyfriend who she claims to love very much. Do I tell my boyfriend these pictures are out there? If it were just him maybe I would let it go... but as a parent myself... I wouldn't be happy at all to know that there were pictures of my kids out there. I'm just frustrated with this person already & I wish she would move away!!

Hi! I guess it would be better if you will going to tell her about it. Maybe she's not aware that it's making you upset.

Unfortunately... I think if she knew it was upsetting me she would post more pictures to do just that...

When a relationship ends for me, I take down pictures of me and my ex boyfriends. I just don't want that reminder if it is with a group of friends thats fine but if its just me and the ex then I take them down and possibly delete them from my computer if I cannot edit them.

I agree, I do the same thing for the most part, or put the pictures away in a box in storage. I'm still friends with many of my exes so I do still have pictures of them, but like I said, they are put away in storage in boxes in my garage, they are not something I look at ever. She claims to have gotten rid of all pictures and everything because she didn't want the reminders of how bad he broke her heart, even though she is the one that cheated, and yet, these pictures are still there for everyone to see.

Well, if that is the case, maybe your boyfriend can send the girl a message, to just take it away from those social networking pages . Or maybe call her for such a request. I think, she hasn't gotten over with your boyfriend, that's why she still keeps those pictures. It's time that someone should tell her about those pictures that are not supposedly be in her pages of social networking accounts.

She's really crazy and desperate for still having your boyfriend's photos on her MySpace. I think you need to tell your boyfriend about it especially that his kids photos are on there too. Maybe she don't really have a boyfriend and still has hopes that your boyfriend gets back to her...

Hi Dancer, Welcome to Mylot! No, I don't think it's right to have them on the net or displayed at home either. Pictures of an ex really belong packed away for the memories. I think I would just stay out of her facebook and myspace. either they are up there because she just hasn't thought to remove them or she is just messing with you. Either way, I'd ignore her.
