      Sorry to hear this, Anthony.
      You can always read your conversations with her,
      go to messages, and open her conversation.
      (type her name on the search box)

      Or just Go to her profile and click on "message".

      You can see all the messages.
      If you want to save them for offline viewing on your computer,

      1)Scroll upside and the old messages will start to load.
      scroll or just keep the home key pressed till it reaches to the very first messages.

      2)Press ctrl+s and save it,
      it will save a .htm file named your her name-messages.htm with a folder of related files.
      you can read it offline also.

    Facebook now automatically saves the chat history. However, it is enabled only in the new type of messages. FB has rolled out new message system in which all your inbox messages, e-mails (i.e from your FB e-mail ID) and also chat will be available in a single page. FB is slowly rolling out this feature and all users will soon be upgraded to the new messages system.

    Here's an official FB link regarding the new messages system :

    On the same page you can also find request invitation button. You can click on that to receive an invitation to upgrade to the new messages.

    If you still didn't receive the upgrade invitation, you can try the addons mentioned on this page :

      I suggest you stop using Facebook.

    • Jay

      you can Delete your chat messages from your account.
      but it will still be saed on your friends account.
      if you want to chat without recording history, chat from gmail.
