    My friend is dating this new girl, and he still hangs out with his ex. His new girlfriend wants him to end it, because its holding on to the past. How do you feel about that?

    He actually has a draw of photos and letters that he has collected throughout his life, and some of those photos are with her, and some of the letters are from their relationship together. She wants him to not only get rid of them, but burn them. Do you think shes justified in saying that?

    Thanks for your help TSR

    It's alright being friends but i can only assume he is trying to stay buddy friends with his ex incase the need for sex arises!

    If I was him I'd keep em and tell her they're throw away. And I'd sit her down, and tell her how much she means to me ( in a non-cheesy way ).... simples....

    I don't think he should throw the stuff away, it's memories of a certain part of his life. He shouldn't have to completely get rid of it just because his gf doesn't like that he used to be with someone else. Maybe he could invite both of them out so they can get to know each other? If she sees that they're just friends then she might be ok with it.

    He could just box up his old photos and put them in the loft or something. He can keep 'em, but they're not shoved in her face that way.

    As for the ex, I'd hate it.. but you can't stop someone being friends with someone else. She should just keep her inner jealousy on the low, but lay out boundaries etc.
