So, I recently started dating this guy. I am so happy with everything and I'm really excited about what it could turn into. We've been going out about two and a half months now and a few weeks ago he took me home to his childhood home (about a 4 hour drive) to meet his parents and stay for spring break. I had a great time, but one thing that made me a little uneasy was that written above his closet door in big neon pink letters was "I love you more _____! xoxo, ____"
I commented on it and he said how his ex-girlfriend had written it and how (kinda funny but also depressing) his first girlfriend had written on his wall and then the last girlfriend wrote over it.. hence the "i love you MORE". I didn't really know how to feel about it, so I just kind of tried to forget it was there, which was a little hard seeing as when you laid in his bed it was a straight shot across the room. I don't want to make a big deal about it and don't really feel jealous.. I know we've both had past relationships. I just kind of don't want to have to see it on his wall. We are going back down there in August for a week to house-sit while his parents are on vacation. What do you think I should do? Ask him if we could maybe paint over it? I'm fine with that, but then our sexy vacation is in a painty room. He's going to be going down there for a dentist appointment this Sunday and Monday, but with all the driving and appointments I don't know if he'd really have a lot of time and I feel sort of bad asking him to do it.
Also, the other issue is that when he was younger he drew all over his walls and so some of it is art, which is sort of hard to ask him to paint over.. but I'm not sure if it would look funny to only paint part of the room.
Please tell me what you think! I'd really appreciate any advice. Thanks!

I would say if you were moving into his house and that was on the wall, then you could make a thing out of painting over it. But you are not moving in there- into HIS PARENTS' HOUSE- and so I really think you need to not seriously overstep yourself, which is what you will be doing if you bring up the paint thing. I mean, that's pretty f*cking ballsy, you know that?0
