Boyfriend Keeping Memento From Ex-Girlfriend

"Should My Live-In Boyfriend Keep a Memento From a Former Flame?"

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

We've been together for 2 years and everything is great. Now we're moving in together. The thing is, he used to have this "unattained flame" 6 or 7 years ago who was in a FWB relationship with him. He was in love with her, but she just wanted the sex and the friendship. They were really good friends, but he never actually was in a real relationship with her.

Now we're moving in to a new place and among the things he has brought to our new place is this "dream catcher." It was her gift. He always says he's totally over her and when he was at his own place I used to see this dream catcher hanging in his closet and think: OK, it has been there for a long time, it doesn't matter.


But why would he bring it to our new place? He says it's just a memento, a souvenir and he likes it, reminds him of his younger years. 

I don't know, how should I feel about this?
