I 100% agree with this. Also, you can say someone doesn't have the "right" to be jealous, but a relationship is based on emotions - how you feel about each other IS the relationship (unless you are engaged/married). And people don't weigh both sides to figure if they have the right to feel something. If they are jealous or uncomfortable, they are, and as our partner you should do what you can to avoid that. Of course some people are unhealthily possessive and that's an issue of its own, but I would always do what I can to make sure my partner is happy. I'd rather take care of things BEFORE they become an issue, rather than after. I don't feel any particular gain from having memorabilia lying around.
When I ended things with the last guy I was with, I deleted his facebook, number, skype and the message history on fb. We had some nice times together, and I will remember these in my mind
, but needing physical proof basically says that "sometimes I like to sit and look at these and reminisce on the past". Which really isn't appropriate when with someone new.
Regardless of how happy I was with a previous guy, it is completely overshadowed by what I have with the guy I'm currently seeing and the memories we hope to create.
