I hope you guys can forgive me for asking for some more advice. I promise this will be the last request for a very long time. If this is against the rules let me know mods and shut the thread down, no hard feelings I have an ex-boyfriend who I respect, though we are no longer friends. We just didn’t keep in touch, though we remain respectful towards one another. Some time before we broke up his mother gave to me a number of baby photos of his, which I had intended to makes copies of and send the originals back to her, but he and I broke up before then. After a series of months (years, actually) I forgot about the photos, and no one ever asked me about them. About a few weeks ago I stumbled over them. They are originals, and I remember his mother saying she had no copies. I’m due to visit his part of the country soon (we come from the same area originally), and I had thought about returning them to her, but I’m also feeling uneasy about giving the wrong message or making anyone in his family uneasy. I’d mail them to the family but I don’t really remember the address (just remember where it is in town) and would not want them to get lost. It would be so much easier to just trash them, but I know if I were in the ex/mother’s place I’d want them back. Throwing them away makes me feel like a heel. My current boyfriend is supportive whatever I do. He knows that these photos mean nothing to me personally, and that I’m happy to be with him. From the grape vine I’ve learned my ex is in a relationship (we retain some mutual friends). There’s no fear of something untoward happening though, as I said, I do worry that my getting in this kind of contact will make him wonder about my motives, no matter how I go about this. I just really want to get these back to his family without causing a stir… or am I being silly and should I just throw them away? I just want to do the right thing without causing any more discomfort than strictly necessary for anyone.
