My boyfriend is grieving the death of his ex 4 years later
My boyfriend's ex died a few years before we met (We've been together for 13 months). His ex was killed by a drunk diver when they were still dating and I think he's still grieving for her 4 years later.
He talks about her a lot. He'll show me cute pictures of him her on his phone a lot. When he cooks he talks about how much she liked what ever we're eating. Once during s*x he said "[her name] loved it when I did this"." Even though I loved it too, he was talking about her during s*x with me.
He got really mad at me when I kept telling him that he should take a framed picture of the two of them in Iceland off from his wall because he needs to move on.
I feel horrible for him. He clearly loves her more than me. He didn't deserve to loose her. He told me that he lost his virginity to her and only had s*x once between her dying and becoming sexually active with me. I have a key to his apartment and once I walked in and he was sitting in a chair just stairing at a picture of them next to a Christmas tree.
He clearly loves her more than me but I don't take it personally.
