The Ex Files: Keep old mementos?

My friend Lewis recently had dinner at his lady friend’s house. He noticed a lot of racy pictures of her that she displayed in her living room. When he inquired about them, she said that her former boyfriend took the pictures and she kept them because they were so beautiful. I am not sure if Lewis was bothered more by the nearly nude images or the fact that the “guy before him” took them.

He asked me if I kept things from past relationships and I actually had to think really hard to remember. I had kept a lot! I also forgot that some of it came from an ex. It’s interesting to see how the things we hold on to from our past relationships become a part of who we are. If it was a gift from an ex, the sentimental value is there but that doesn’t mean we haven’t moved on.

How much “stuff” do you still have from your past relationships? Would you keep racy pictures, sex tapes, jewelry, etc. that would be a constant reminder about them?

Would your exes be surprised at the things you still have from the time you spent together?

Would you want the person you are dating to conceal those sentimental things?

P.S. Did you know that you can make money by selling stuff from your exes? “Never Liked it Anyway” lets you unload stuff from bad relationships. Yes. I am mad that I didn’t think of this too.

I’m not much of a shopper so a guy going with me to the mall doesn’t register as anything special to me. Oh well…

LOL……@Ex
I know, that romantic stuff is good at the onset. I was in Minnesota at the Mall Of America and that thing covers too many acres of land for me. It has a roller coaster inside that makes passes by each store and a theme park imagine that. That may have been the caused of my trauma with malls.

There is a huge mall in North Carolina but I don’t remember the name of it or what city it’s in. All i recall is that each wing of the mall was numbered to help you keep up with where you were.

ITL – Yeah, you have a point there. I’ll just shake my head and smile like I know what he said

Clothing (with the exception of under-roos) left behind goes to Goodwill, if it’s nice enough to donate. Underbritches go in the trash.

Completely O/T: When did UPS start hiring attractiveness-challenged drivers? Used to be, the scale went from cute to gorgeous to fine as heyal!

I saw Red Tails. I enjoyed it all. Terrace Howard (Colonel) did an excellent job. Ne-Yo was better than I expected. He was almost the Forrest Gump in the movie. Love Cuba in ANYTHING he does. Nonetheless, the story was exceptional, the movie itself was incredible and the fighting scenes were spectacular. When you’re good and have talent, nothing will stop you. Although many of the “whites” didn’t believe in their abilities and didn’t want them there, they were still willing to fight for their safety. Now, that’s bravery and colorblindness at its finest.
