i don't understand people who want to keep clothes or anything. when i go through a breakup, it's easier for me to move on if i don't have them anywhere around me. however, i have given clothes back and then wished i hadn't. like yesterday. i am hoping i'll be able to get them back.......some people like to keep clothes and trinkets to remember good times and feel loved, i think. i'd say it's a good sign she wants to keep them. she doesn't wnat to part with you just yet. altho it's a bit odd if she's dating some other guy.

Ugh, I would just go shopping rather than deal with the drama of "fighting" with her to get them back. I would ask her for them back, and if she says NO, just forget it.


She is keeping them because she associates them with emotional memories (yes, people can do this even with clothes... But they ARE they are YOURS and you are entitled to them and she has no right to keep them if you are broken up so I would ask for them again. If you still don't get them...just buy new ones...

My ex kept mementos from our relationship. I also gave him all the mementos I had-- including photo albums and souvenoirs from our vacations together. He was puzzled, and said he would "keep them for me" in case I wanted them back later, and said he hoped I would want them back. He also said he would cherish our memories and miss making more memories. Then he left me crying in a transportation center (we were on the phone) and never looked back (except to email me at his convenience).

Anyway, be happy the clothes are gone-- let them be her baggage. Go shopping and feel liberated.

yes i dont plan on asking for them back and breaking NC!! . . ITS true what they say that u heal much better not talking to the person . . .. im still not completely over her but i am doing much better since i started the NC! . . . I just didnt understand why she wanted to keep them . ..i mean i asked her and she said if i really have to have them she would give them back but she said she would rather keep them . .. just dont understand it . . .it would make it harder for me
