Pictures my boyfriend keeps
My boyfriend keeps this big photo of an ex girlfriend on the side table by his bed. It''s turned upside down but previously it was laying sideways that I couldn''t miss it. He clearly did not want me to see so he put it upside down but um it''s still there and I saw it ages ago. I haven''t said anything and I probably won''t. There is also a booklet of naked photos and poetry from another woman he once knew all bound up with a red ribbon. I haven''t said anything either.

We''ve been together for over three years and I just keep quiet.

Its rather hard for him to come up with an entirely innocent explanation for that - clearly he is not over her, and that relationship is still very current in his mind, whatever he may say about it. It;s a bit more than mere sentimentality.
It does sound as though you have done a pretty thorough search of his home and room. Have you really not even chatted to him about previous relationships, and whether he has found them easy or hard to forget ?
