Do you keep photos of your ex boyfriend/girlfriend?

March 16, 2007 6:30am CST
I have an album and some other photos of my ex. I'm not sure whether I should keep them or not. I feel like why should I throw away my photos, they are part of my history, but at the same time I also feel like the time has been and gone and I should chuck them. What do you think?

I would say you should definitely keep them. Whatever happened at the end of your relationship, you must have had some good times with your ex and they're just as much a part of your life as anything else. If you throw them away, i think you would certainly regret it in the future.

I will keep them in a secret box.

I don't keep any photos or remainders from any of my exs, the ones I have cherished I keep in my head and have songs to remind me of them. But most of my ex's weren't or aren't worth remembering and it gave me great pleasure in tearing their photos up, if I cold and callous, I don't make any apologies for what I went through it was the least I deserved, ripping the photos gave me satisfaction and pyschologically put an end to the relationship!

I still have old photos of ex-boyfriends. Although they are stored away and I don't look at them. I don't think I'll throw them away as they were part of my life for a while, years ago. Maybe I'll chuck them later when I'm old and can't remember who they are anyway!!

Mine are store away too. I might chuck them when I older too, when Im at the stage of having a family and that.

I don't think I will keep them. Instead,I think I will burn them. Although we had a good time before , it was . I will keep them in my heart. And I think that's a safe place.

I also have a photo album where I made it like a scrap book, where I cut and pasted the pictures that it gave me a hard time to remove it already becuase it's been glued. In that album/ scrapbook, I pasted my ex boyfriend together with some pals and there were some pictures of my crushes too. BUt that was it. The rest of the pictures of my ex's which I put in my wallet are all gone. I threw them away already, including the letters. It's of no use already because they are just part of my past. What's important for me now is the my present bopyfriend. :)
