- Yes, regardless of who ended it
- Yes, only if they broke up with me

I have been lucky in the sense that any girlfriend I've had never wanted their photos taken. So I've rarely had to delete any couples photos.
However, I usually get rid of gifts from them, so I would assume I'd do the same with photos. I'm not really a big broadcaster in my relationships anyway. I tend to keep that stuff private... I think that if they were more photogenic and if the relationships were serious, then I might put them on social media, and then take them off if there's a breakup.

No I don't delete them, but I very rarely go through old pictures anyway. A few years after I broke up with my first boyfriend, I was going through my old photos for the first time. I was surprised that I was happy I kept them. I didn't keep them deliberately and I had genuinely forgotten they were there, but however unsuited we were in the long run I was happy at the time and they're my memories.
Now I just make sure to add a lot of new photos shortly after a break up to push the old ones further down. That way they don't pop up every time I go to my own profile on facebook or at the top of my wall on instagram, but I'll be able to find them later when it doesn't hurt anymore.
