DEAR DEIDRE: I’VE been with my girlfriend for more than a year but she still has pictures of her, with her ex, on Facebook.
I’m 18 and she’s 17. We go to the same college. She was at school with her ex and they were together for three years.

He goes to a different college now but she still talks about him a lot and has contact with his family.
I was a virgin when we met, while her ex was her first.
I don’t know if it’s because of that but surely he wouldn’t be on her mind after a year if she was happy with me?
DEIDRE SAYS: He is part of her personal story and maybe she simply gets on well with his family, who were close to her through much of her teens.
Focus on your relationship now, making that strong and happy.
If you are not sure how good the sex you share is for her, ask her. My e-leaflet How To Have Great Sex can help.
The vital thing at your life stage is sorting out effective contraception.
