Not too long ago my girlfriend and I broke up. It wasn’t a bad break up but we both prefer not to talk to each other for the time being. There’s a zero chance for us to get back together so I’m trying my best to move on now. I’m just not sure if I should delete all my photos with her on Instagram. There are photos of just us two while there are those with our friends as well. A part of me is telling me to let it be while another part of me is saying delete it all. I just feel bad because all the photos taken during our Ukraine ski trip has her on it. If I delete it I wouldn’t have a souvenir from that vacation. What do I do? In case you’re wondering, she hasn’t deleted her photos as far as I know. She didn’t even change our nicknames on Messenger.

How did you break up? was it quite a mutual break up or was it a nasty one?

If it was a nasty one, I personally would delete them, but it may be worth making a backup.

You can still keep the photos offline, they don't need to be public, but some people do prefer deleting all of their memories on social.

If you do decide to keep them you need to somehow make it obvious that you're still not in a relationship, as if you keep the photos but looking for another girlfriend, this may be quite off-putting for the new woman.

I have also updated your title to be more descriptive, I have updated it to: Should I delete our relationship photos on Instagram now we aren't together?

It was a mutual decision from the both of us. I suppose it's better to just take them down and save them offline but right now, I'm not just not in the right place to be thinking about future girlfriends. Thanks for your input though.

No problem, I like being active here and helping people. Do you have an update regarding this - have you removed the relationship photos on instagram?

Or have you decided to keep them?

You could always make a decision later on down the line! As it was a mutual breakup and you have both decided that the relationship should end based on numerous factors (as I guess you both came to the conclusion that the relationship wasn't working) then it's all OK to keep them. They are little reminders of the great time you had together, but if you would be upset seeing them, it may be worth deleting for your own good.
