Most Helpful Guy
Long distance relationships are hard. With that said, I'd be hard pressed to find a male friend of mine who actually wouldn't be annoyed with the constant phone calls the fact that he keeps in touch with you on an hourly basis is quite a good sign I think. As far as photo's on social media with the ex, I've 2 points to make. First I's like to ask you, is he really big into social media? I know a few guys that are, but mostly we don't care for it too much. Updating my facebook status doesn't ever equate to a thing I need to do. In fact the last time I was even on facebook was the day after I set up an account to appease guess what, a woman! I signed back in because I couldn't find her on day one. Never been back. Secondly, many years ago I was living with my girlfriend who happened to be nosing around through my stuff (bad girl). She happened to stumble across a drawer full of my life's keepsakes. Things of all manner, photo's of me and my friends love letters from ex girlfriends cassette tapes of my old bands, awards I got in grammar school, school photos, all manner of memorabilia, including photos of ex girlfriends and even a pair or panties I obtained when I lost my virginity. When I came home she had been sitting there with a pile of things that remind me of my life (specifically only those that were ex girlfriend related. She was angry, how dare I keep reminders of things that once meant something to me. She demanded I throw this stuff out. Like a fool I appeased her. She was still angry and I had to live with her anger for weeks. Now so many years later my memory is not what it once was. there are now gaps in my memory of my own life. However now that she's left me there is a new photo of an exgirlfriend in that drawer. I am so dissapointed in myself for appeasing her in the first place. these things were my experiences my life my past things I learned greatly from and I allowed a woman to erase them from my life because of her insecurities. These things were never a threat to her or our relationship. And I'm at a significant loss for trying to make her feel better. If only she had TRUSTED me maybe she wouldn't have left me. That lack of trust manifested itself in many ways, all of which affected me negatively. She left when I decided to show her the same level of mistrust. So let me simply ask you this question. Are these pictures just a reminder of a time in his past or are they truly a threat to you?
