My boyfriend has pictures of his ex-wife and ex-girlfriend still on his phone. He’s explained the situation that he hardly talks to either of them anymore, although he was involved very deeply and completely in these former relationships. The pictures bother me (example: his ex-wife in a sexy maid halloween outfit; his ex-girlfriend making that goddamn kissy face in a recent picture she sent him). Without seeming like a jealous control freak (which I am not), how do I get him to remove the pictures?
Um, you are a jealous control freak. You’re just not any good at it.
Not only are you in denial about your jealousy, but you lack the basic manipulation skills to convince a boy to delete pictures from his phone. Pathetic.
Your best bet is to slow your roll and hope you wake up cool tomorrow.
