"Babe, go look at the shelf on top of my computer. No, seriously, go look!" he insisted. The girl quickly headed towards his computer table and spotted a container. Her face flushed red when she opened it.
The container was full of pink cleaning wipes. The woman felt terrible for doubting her boyfriend's loyalty. He must be thinking I'm crazy, she thought. Another Redditor shared a story where his girlfriend did something similar.
The Redditor wrote that his girlfriend saw a pink toothbrush in his bathroom and thought he was cheating on her. She was shocked when he told her it was his toothbrush. He added that he doesn't care what color toothbrush it is as long as it does the job.

SIGNS YOUR PARTNER IS CHEATING ON YOU
Cheating partners are often masters at hiding their affairs. However, it's not impossible to decipher the truth. Some behavioral changes are a clear indicator of a cheating spouse.
According to a relationship counselor, Yvonne Filler, technological advancements have made it difficult to hide an affair. A cheating partner is more likely to turn off the iCloud "share on all devices" feature on their iPhone.
She also shared that some cheating spouses also completely stop using shared devices. They also spend less time on social media, and their smartwatch has exercise records at odd hours.

A clinical psychologist, Ramani Durvasula, says cheating partners don't share what they did during the day. Forgetting to mention something once or twice is OK, but constant repetition means the person is lying, according to a family therapist, David Klow.
Another sign of cheating could be using the phone in the bathroom. Klow says some people are addicted to their phones, so they take them to the toilet, which doesn't count as cheating.
Darvasula suggests keeping an eye if it's a new habit. According to her, cheating partners keep their phones with them at all times because they know they can receive a message from their lover anytime.
