Which of my ex's photos would I be keeping, and why? Photos of her family? Her dog? Why would I want them?

Oh, wait, you probably mean exes.

I don't keep photos of exes. That's a creepy thing to keep.

Once they're truly gone and out of your life and its been a few years, I agree it's kinda creepy to keep them. With relationships though, what's important is not what you're actually doing but what you let the other partner know you're doing... i.e. I don't care if she keeps them just so long as I don't f-cking see 'em or know about them at all, and I think she'd expect the same respect from me. If I ever stumbled upon them then I would be pissed off since it necessarily means she didn't make an effort to hide them. I'm fairly taliban when it comes to this stuff though, I'll be pissed for days if she even just mentions an ex.

This.

I always tease them whenever the subject of an ex comes up.

He then turned to me and said, "You should take some hot shots of "A" and we can share them."

We dont see each other than much anymore.

Creepy.

From my experiences.... my gf's tend to be a little jealous and hate anything having to do with my ex(s).

I know when my parents got married my dad had a box full of letters and photos from the girls he had dated when single, nothing risque, to include prom pictures and stuff. When my mom discovered it she took all of it and dumped it into the Webber barbeque pit, poured charcoal lighter all over it, and lit the whole thing in a blaze of glory. My dad was pretty upset because these were his memories from his youth, but my mom, being Brasilian, is insanely jealous so that is what happens. They have been married 29 years so I guess he got over it.
It is also one of those family stories we tell now and again.

Bad news. Been the source of many bad dinners. In the age of facebook photos and internet bullshit incriminating photos always can come up. Allow me to echo some sound advice i once got... Douvke wrap it and dont ever take pictures.

Its funny but every woman I've dated has told me she always remains friends with her ex's, has aimicable breakups etc but when it came time with me, none of them actually maintained any contact with me afterwards :)
