  • Very nice question. And I do, but I hide it. I've recently broke up and as soon as I can be bothered I'm going to take everything and hide it away. Maybe in a couple of years I'l look back at either good memories or bad. If bad, I'll throw them away.
  • things like cd's etc
  • only the heartache
  • Oh yeah, especially if they're things I like or still use...like movies or cds.
  • Yeah....there are the unreturnables like hugs, words of endearment, late night calls, and yes, the saliva from those deep kisses!!!!
  • Jewlery, yes. I got rid of the vibrator. Kept the dog.
  • Yes, I kept a special key chain for over 30 years. But recently I lost it and I really wish I could find it. It holds very special memories for both of us. It is the broken end of a brake handle off a motorcycle with a hole drilled into it for the chain. I have looked everywhere for it!
  • Yes, we were together 20 years. It is boxed up, and I will give the stuff to my boys or their children, if they want it later.
  • only the real expensive, valuable stuff, like jewelry and automobiles.
  • Not everything just the herpes, and genital warts... give guys something to nibble on
  • Why not, she gave me some nice things
  • I can keep the less sentimental gifts (like a videogame she gave me or a cd) but if its something that has a history between us, I can't look at it, cause it hurts to o much, so it hides in a drawer.
  • I might have kept some of the stuff my ex gave me over some 34 years of marriage except that I never had the chance. She pretty well cleaned me out, keeping things like pictures of my life before I met her, all of my Vietnam memorabilia, photos from my childhood, etc. It's the one thing I have great difficulty forgiving her for doing.
  • no they go straight to the trash..
  • I burned all of it and the last thing I burned was a letter the ex wrote to me saying she loved me and will always.
  • Only as ashes in my fire pit... *jk* No I left/gave back everything... Why would I need to remide my new bf (now my husband) about my prior relationship(s)??
  • yep. all those memories.
  • Sure,a cool bookcase(I am an avid reader) Coffee cups that we shared time over. She wanted my Cashmere sweater,,NOT gonna get it hun!!! Simple little things,a few tins we gathered over the years. I kept the letters for a few years too.
  • Yeah actually i even said that before i left him i was never going to give it back and it was a ring but still i kept that shit like i said i would
  • Burning everything and burying the ashes I found to be very therapeutic.
  • I have a picture album which has the original piece of paper she gave me with her information the day we met. I had placed it in my camera case but I left it in a taxi. The taxi left with it but I was able to chase it down and get the paper back... funny thing, really. Other than that I have nothing.
  • I still have some rings he gave me, but I don't wear them because I feel like it's something against my current boyfriend. I really wish I didn't associate those rings with him, though... I love those rings.
  • I get rid of everything that he gave to me or we shared. I only keep the expensive things. Even then, I end up giving that stuff away to my sister or my mom so I wont ever have to lay eyes on them again.
  • I used to have letters. I decided to trash them. That was the way I knew I was finally over him. As for gifts, (due to my past relationship being across seas), nothing physical was exchanged. I would imagine it would depend on the item. My current boyfriend's gifts would be items I would likely keep.
  • sure My favorite blankie I got from my ex wife
  • yes... a gift is a gift....
  • The only thing i got is a coat and my engagement ring, all letters and photos was burnt and gifts was sold on Ebay. I regret it all now. Him on the other hand who dumped me has kept the lot...strange.
  • hell no. i give that stuff back. pretty much if im done with ya i dont need any of your stuff. i can get it on my own.
  • I still have cds, and movies, and bears, and lots of other things (gifts) that were given to me while I was with my ex(s)... I don't feel the need to throw out gifts just because we broke up.. I don't hate any of my exes so.. I don't really feel the need to throw their stuff out.
  • Ok, If you got an Ipod Touch from him/her. Would you keep it? I Would :D
  • yes...everything is in a box & every once in a while I go back & visitthat time in my life & usually it makes me happy to be where I am now!
