Do you keep anything that reminds you of an Ex?

What do you have, if anything? Photos of him/her in an album or on your hard drive, locket of their hair for a voodoo doll, divorce papers, etc.?

I have a few photos here and there. I probably should toss them but I don't look at them very often.

Two things I haven't been able to extricate from my life that remind of my ex-wife on a daily basis. My kids. And my daughter is a carbon copy of her.

Clothes. I hate shopping so every ex I have had usually picks out my clothes.

I have two shoeboxes of things from ex's that were very significant to me. I look at them about as often as I look at my comic book collection (which is almost never).

Typically, I throw out everything. Depending on how the relationship ended.

I know it's a sign that I spend too much time here when I first thought the OP was talking about excentris.

An ex gave me a bottle of Glenlivet with one drink missing. She didn't like it. I'm a light drinker, so there's about an inch left at the bottom of the bottle.

Re: Do you keep anything that reminds you of an Ex?

The last ex I had before I met my wife tried to give me back all the stuff I had given her in the 2 months we dated. I told her that I didn't care what she did with it, but that I didn't want it.

I don't think she ever got me anything, so I don't have to worry about it. I did have photos and stuff, but I'm pretty sure I deleted all of them. I think in my physical photos I have some pictures of a woman that I saw a couple of times... which I mainly keep because her kids are in them and they were so cute... I wonder what they are all like now?

Re: Do you keep anything that reminds you of an Ex?

I have one photo of one ex, nothing from anyone else except the virginity of one. One of my tattoos was inspired by a breakup, but I don't think of the woman when I look at it, I think of the lessons learned.

Re: Do you keep anything that reminds you of an Ex?

Aside from some photos in a box, I only have a picture frame. She gave me the frame while we were dating, but once we broke up, I put the following picture in instead:


(I got the photo, with fake stamped "autograph", from a freebie thread here a long time ago)

Emilio fit in perfectly, so I put it under my TV, and it has remained in my TV area for about 7 years now. My ex did come over a few months after we broke up, as we were friends for some time after the breakup. She saw the changed picture, simply said "nice".
