For me personally when I break up with someone whether it's friendly or not. I have a cleanse delete all my pics, donate the stuff they gave me to charity. For me it's helps me make that fresh start. The past is the past to me and I move on. I know everyone is not like that and I understand this. I know people like to keep little memories or pictures.
Anyway the guy I've been dating for the last 2 months it's been amazing. But the problem that's stopping me for getting into a serious relationship is the fact he has lovey dovey pictures up of him and his ex. It makes me feel so uncomfortable and a little insecure. Like is he looking at these pictures and missing her?
He keeps bringing up the relationship talk and making future plans but for me I'm guarding myself a little because of it. I would like to talk to him about it just so he knows that it does make me uncomfortable. But I'm worried he'll think, I'm backing him into a corner which is not what I want to do. Would you be upset if your new boyfriend/girlfriend kept pictures of them on social media? I just want to know what you all think before I do say something.

I'm pretty sure he's not fully over his exes and would only use you as a rebound. Sooner or later you will have to make it clear to him that he needs to work on moving on and moving forward because that relationship is in his past and he can't change it. By dwelling onto it and hoping that one day he'll see her again and get her back is hurting the current relationship he is having with you. And if he doesn't agree and doesn't start to slowly remove traces of photos of his ex, then it's time for you move on because this relationship really isn't going anywhere since he's still dwelling on his past girlfriend and holding onto her emotionally and is unwilling to let her go in his mind and heart.3

This may not be what you want to hear. Be very careful here. This is a sign that he is not completely over his ex, which means she still has power over him. My ex husband did this when we first started dating, I talked to him about it and he took all of the pictures down. However, he ended up cheating on me with that very same girl for the last two years of our marriage. If you talk to him about it, I would recommend doing more than just addressing the pictures. Try to gauge how he feels about her. If he still has feelings for her, then I would personally not pursue a relationship with the guy.2
