    Not really complaining too much about it but more wondering what other people's view and own story is on this. Just something I've realised recently is that my girlfriend and I have been going out for over a year (on and off) but we have maybe 10 pictures together and they were all at the same time which was more than 6 months ago. I mean I know some people who have loads of pics with them and their girlfriend and, I dunno, just came into my head and I thought it was maybe a bit weird.

    It's really just for memories and stuff I suppose - I'll always remember her, sure, but pictures are nice to look back on etc.

    Me and my ex never really took pictures of us together for the first month of going out and after that it just became a lil awkward to try lol. Just gotta go ahead and start doing it =D or you could socialise more where you know other people will take pictures of you together.

    My boyfriend hates having pictures taken of him so there are only a few pictures of us together. We've been together for 2 1/2 years and at first I was really paranoid about it (what if he doesn't want his friends to know) but I know that he just has self-esteem issues.

    Me and my boyfriend don't have that many either, apart from a load we took one day in a photo booth and some from when I've been out with him and his friends. There's no real reason for it, well, not that I know of, but I do agree with you in that it'd be nice to have loads more :sad:

    Me & my bf have been together 6 years and I think there's about 10 photos of us together at most. Doesn't mean anything other than we don't care about adorning our house with pics of ourselves. I hate people who do that.

    Not really a fan of taking pics with a girlfriend if I'm honest, I'm not really into facebook style snaps being taken :dry: Also when it's over (which is innevitable) having pictures only reminds you of the things you want to forget. I think pictures make it harder for people to move on, even when deleting/untagging off facebook it can be quite a frustrating time.

    The combined unphotogenicalness of both me and my boyfriend in the same picture is probably enough to break a camera lens. We avoid it

    Me and my boyfriend only have like.... maybe four photos together? It just seems a bit pointless, I mean I see him most of the time anyway, and we both hate having our photos taken at any time.

    The amount of photos you have together really doesn't matter, we have been together over four years so clearly a lack of pictures together hasn't had much effect!

    Me and my boyfriend have 60 photos together (I know that because Facebook says..) and we've been going out for 7 and a bit months.
    We go to a lot of parties together and pics get taken there. We have more than that actually, but I untag the ''bad ones'' haha.
    It it bothers you then tell her, but at the end of the day you're having the experiences so you don't need (or shouldn't need) photos to be able to remember.

    We don't have 10 billion photos of ourselves, but the few we do have are actually really special

    My boyfriend and I have 92 pictures together according to Facebook, and a few more on phones etc... the only reason we have that many is because we go to parties etc. and we've been on several holidays together. Otherwise it'd be far fewer. I know one couple though who seem to document every waking hour of their lives with photos together. Scary.

    My ex and I were together for 10 months and only managed to take about 6 photos of us two. A shame Would have loved more for the memories. Ah well, when I meet someone I'm vowing to take a lot more.

    I hate having my picture taken, hence there are very few pics of me and my bf. I don't really care. I hate it when people have their facebook pages covered with pictures of them and their partner kissing. Eugh!
