    So I was dating an amazing man for a while. Unfortunately , we couldn't stay together because of cultural reasons. Well basically, we both come from different cultures and background, it became tough so we decided to end it for both our sakes.

    Anyway I still want to keep the memories since I had some of the best days of my life with him. He sent me gifts and wrote romantic letters. I was so close to throwing them away but then I thought, I can't let go of all the memories and I should keep them.

    But where do I hide and keep safe my romantic letters and gifts? Here is the problem, I come from a strict very conservative family, I can't let anyone in my family see them. Right now the gifts are hidden in my cupboard but someone could easily find them there. I really don't know where I could hide them and keep it safe.

    Any suggestions?

    Let me guess, it became tough because your families are traditionalist cockjockeys?

    Well for now it's kinda safe in my cupboard but I was thinking of a more safer and secure option.

    I'm 21.

    We come from completely different backgrounds including different beliefs,cultures, upbringing etc. We just somehow hit off.

    It sounds like the barriers between you are artificial and deliberate i.e. created by your parents
    Aren't you old enough to have some leeway with them?

    Just few subtle places I can think of atm- in a book / inside a big soft toy (although you would have to cut a small hole in the toy) / behind a picture in a picture frame.

    We had a good time and were In love but tbh thinking back I don't think we were well matched and had too many differences to make it work long term, but that's maybe because things just became too stressful.

    Kinda and it's something people of that background do go through. I've been in a very similar situation myself so if you want a chat, my PMs are open
