Does Your Ex Keep things from their previous relationships? Here is an email from a listener with a problem.

A couple of months ago, I found some cards and photos in my boyfriends room, these cards and photos were from his previous relationship. I asked him why did he kept them and he said "to remember the good memories". This hurt a lot but he eventually threw them away. He told me that he threw them away because he was scared of us breaking up.

About a week ago, I was looking around his room innocently again and found 2 cards from the same girl. He said he must have over looked them. My question is 'If he did keep them, why did he put them in such an obvious place?'. I accepted this and was just thinking a few minutes ago that all the cards and stuff were in a box.

So either somehow he is telling the truth or, he actually took them out of the box and kept them. I don't know what to think.
