Do you have any mementos from men in your past? Does your SO have any from exes?

My DH has a random box of pictures but we started dating when he was 20, so it's more like high school memories at this point. I have kept some jewelry from an ex but that's it,

I know some couple throw everything out from their past.

I have some pictures but only because my DD is in them. Nothing else.

When my husband first got together with his ex, she made him throw out EVERYTHING.  It is sad because he would like that stuff now.  I kept my first "love letter," a few photgraphs, maybe a couple of cards that meant something to me at the time.  I showed them to my daughter a couple of months ago and she laughed because "Mom had boyfriends!" :)  My husband and I know that we love each other but we also realize that we have a past.  There is a HUGE difference between reminiscing about the past and wanting to relive it.

I have a small box of a few pictures and a poem an ex wrote for me. DH has a box with pictures that I got the pleasure of cleaning up when DD2 got into it :-/ Not fun btw. I think he is planning on throwing his pictures out, not at my request. I should probably clean mine out as well. I don't even know where that box is off hand.

THat is cute. I wish I still had stuff from my early teen years.

I got rid of everything.  I know my SO has some pics and other stuff stashed away somewhere.

I only had one boyfriend in high school. The only pictures I have of him are the ones from a school dance we attended together and some group shots of a bunch of our friends. 

DH didn't have any girlfriends before me. He went to dances with girls as friends and stuff but never a real relationship.
