Is it a red flag having pictures of your ex still on social media?

So this girl that I kinda like has some pictures about her ex. One is a picture with him and another was a gift she got on her birthday with a caption saying thanks to her ex and all. Another is also a caption with her ex. She said she was done with him and all and said he suffocated her in the relationship but why does she still have photos of her ex if they are done.
Should I be worried?

  • Pictures are memories. I have a couple of my hated ex on social media, because a) they are nice pictures b) they remind me of where we went and what I did.
    It may be the same for this girl. It is also possible that she might not even think about those pictures or give them any consideration.
    If, however, she has pictures of herself with him everywhere and shows other tendencies of being hung up on him, well, different story.

  • Ya it's a red flag. I would never care for memory. Any kind whether good or bad. I would just delete them, block her, erase whatever is associated with her online. This all i would do even if I did not hv new girlfriend.

  • Having an ex on social media does not mean you will cheat on your current companion or go back to them - it means you had an experience with this person that affected your emotions and don't want to discard the years of your life that you spent invested in that person.

  • No, sometimes people can even forget they're still on there if they're that far behind in there photos, i think i even have some from years ago, but i have no tie to these people anymore, just haven't bothered to go back and delete them.

  • It's not a red flag, in my opinion.
    Just because they broke up doesn't mean that she didn't enjoy the memories and good times they once shared. Or she just didn't think about deleting the pictures. For some people, social media isn't so important that they feel the need to update it all the time.

  • i still have pictures with my ex and i don't see a problem. it was about 2 years ago now. we didn't end on bad terms so i thought it seemed petty to go and delete them all. if i had a boyfriend and he asked me to take them down i would. but for now i don't think it matters. i wouldn't say it's a red flag. you should ask her why she still has them.

  • They're just memories. Anyhow you're operating under the assumption that people were bothered enough to go back and delete all the old photos of their ex. Usually only people not over their ex need to do that. I would say it's more of a sign that she really does not care about him anymore. It could be a red flag tho, but it likely isn't.

  • I dont see it as a red flag. I still have pictures of my ex on Facebook, most people I know still have pictures on their Facebook. They don't mean anything, they are just pictures. They're memories.

  • It could go both ways, honestly. I know that if a guy I liked had pictures with an ex I’d question it some and be kind of bothered by it. But I think as you get serious into the relationship, I’d feel okay with asking them about it and I’d hope they would take them down as new memories are being created with me. Hope it makes sense

  • No, it's part of your past and therefore a part of who you are.

  • If someone has been using Social media, like FB, then their Time-Line could be long. Resulting in some photo's maybe being forgotten?

  • The memories were probably good or she just doesn’t care enough to take them down.

  • Some people just dont pay attention to this. Or they broke up on a good terms so she never was mad at him to delete all the pictures. I would just ignore that unless other signs that she is not over him pops up.

  • Honestly, no. I don't delete pictures but it doesn't mean anything bad. I hate my ex boyfriend but deleting the pictures of him would almost be like letting him win because then it would show i was so hurt I had to delete him, which I'm not. Pictures are just history, not the present.
