Looking Back

PropertyOfPotter PropertyOfPotter
Do you still have love notes, cards, little treasures from your partner that you've held on to?

How often do you look through them?

What sparks the desire to look through it?

Does your partner know you have these treasures?

Do you share it together or do they have one of their own?

I do not keep anything from any of my ex's. I am in a relationship right now but when we are done I get rid of everything. I don't want to be reminded of how the relationship was. I used to do this long time ago and have stopped.

I only have one ex, and while we're on amicable terms and I'm a bit of a hoarder, there's nothing that I've really saved. I think that I still have a card from him somewhere in my room, but I don't keep it for sentimentality, I just think that it got caught up in a bunch of my school papers and never got thrown away.

I have a couple of small things from my one ex. Some gifts that are pretty/still functions and some pictures. I'm not going to get rid of monumental pictures because I have an ex in them. It's a fond memory or event (like climbing up a mountain or something, that kind of thing).

I have little mementos from my current partner from when we started dating in a little box. It probably would look like crap to an outsider, but they are my treasures.

I keep all cards, pictures, and mementos in a box. I don't go through it very often.

I do have a memento box of little items from my husband, trips we have taken, silly things we give each other and sentimental goodies. (I assume you were asking about my CURRENT partner, not an ex...). We look through them off and on, usually when talking about one of the events, items or sharing a goofy story--then we NEED to see our treasures, and then talk about the time we...and then...you get the picture. And yes--I found his by accident, he was a bit embarrassed, but I thought it was pretty neat.

My wife keeps the cards I give her - except some of the sexier ones I make. I assume she is afraid of what the kids will think someday. I don't know how often she goes through them - but I believe the answer is rearely - she just doesn't have a lot of time.

Yes, I meant with your current partner!

I have all the letters we've written each other, cards, and lots of little things that I've held onto that represented something special we did together or went through. I don't go through it often, but every now and then when I'm feeling a little sentimental.

I keep all kinds of things. I go through them periodically on a whim. Makes me happy. I throw away all the things that don't.

I like to scrapbook, so any notes, cards, event tickets, etc. are in n album. I like to look through our photos and mementos of our relationship every few months.

I still have everything my boyfriend has given me through our 3 years together and I generally look through them when I'm feeling bad/neglected/nostalgi c in the relationship so maybe once or twice every couple months? He knows I have all the things I have since it's all on my bedside dresser and he looks through my stuff with me sometimes if he's with me but otherwise he doesn't really keep things, he's not really a sentimental person

I have nothing from my ex's and nothing but little gifts from my husband. We throw away the notes because we tend to save them up until they spill over the table and onto the floor so we throw them just to prevent one of us (mainly me) stepping on them in the morning and slipping.
