If this is not jealousy then what is it?

I was looking for the picture album my boyfriend filled with recent pictures of us and i came across several albums of his. I saw many pictures of him in his single years at parties, kissing on girls, etc. I got a strange feeling inside that I can't seem to explain exactly what it is. I know it's not jealousy because being jealous is being fearful or wary of being supplanted or apprehensive of losing affection or position. I know these pictures are just good memories of his (I can related because I have my pictures from the past too), but I dislike the feeling I get when I see them. I know I shouldn't even look but they're lined up all along the bookshelf.

For those of you who aren't with you first love, how do you deal with things like this?

Just learn to let it go. What else can you do? The present and the future is what matters, not what he did or who he kissed before he even knew you existed.

My fiance was a "serial monogamist" before I met him - he had a series of long term relationships, and 4 serious ex-girlfriends. I can deal with it because they all broke up, and from hearing about each of them, I know that I'm way better for him than any of them were! I only hate the most recent one! And she's living in a different country right now!

insecurity perhaps? I mean, what is there to dislike? He's with you now, the pics are the past? What's to feel bothered about. I look at those pics and think "haha girls, he mine now!! :P" Or chuckle because he was always so fun at parties.

actually, i think that is jealousy and it's normal. but very few people come to a relationship without some history of prior relationships. be happy you are with him now and let it go.

Don't you have pictures of you and your friends/ex's? I know I do, so I don't feel a bit jealous about it. Its memories and I bet he hardly ever looks at them.
