I've been dating my boyfriend for over a year. Our relationship has been a bit difficult as he had separated from his ex just months before we met. Basically he was on a rebound.
Since the beginning I've been patient and understanding. But I noticed that he has no photos form us on Facebook, but has tons of them and many more from her.
I know that isn't the end of the world but I just want to understand as it doesn't seem normal for me. I wanted to ask him but he gets upset every time his ex's name comes up on any conversation.

I don't think it is.
The fact that he gets upset when her names comes up, and you admitted he's on a rebound with you, makes me think he still has feelings for her.

Define "dating".

He's not gonna put a booty call on there.

This.
I mistakenly thought I was in a relationship for nearly 2 years with someone before I realized it was just a FWB thing.

Are you two on a serious relationship or is this just casual?

No, its not normal. You need to let him have his FB pics of his EX, and time to "get over it!"

Ask him. But regardless of his answer, the picture seems clear regarding who he considers the more important one.

If that were my boyfriend, those pictures would have been off yesterday. I think you have your answer.

Sounds like you are really a FWB...if you are ok with that, then all is fine, if not, I'd move on. He is still emotionally attached to his ex.

How often does he update his Facebook page? If he doesn't go on often, he may be too lazy to remove old pictures. Likewise, since he's been burned once, he may be hesitant to put up new pics.

I do vote that you're likely the rebound and he can't be bothered putting up pics of both of you as the likely cause.
