Back when I was in a long term relationship I had all these extra toothbrushes because I bought some giant pack from Costco.
And every time my girlfriend got angry at me and ran off (which happened fairly regularly) she’d throw out her toothbrush.
Then a few hours or days later or whatever she’d come back and go into the giant Costco pack of toothbrushes and have a new toothbrush.
A few months after she had left for good, I accidentally dropped my toothbrush into the toilet and went to the closet to get a new one, but the package (of 25) was empty.
A few months later I was seeing a girl and she established a toothbrush presence in my bathroom.
This made her uneasy since she wasn’t my girlfriend.
She was probably right.
Pretty soon things were over and I had to throw out her toothbrush for her.
With the most recent toothbrush from a different non-girlfriend I just made sure that when she wasn’t around the toothbrush went into the medicine cabinet. This seemed like a reasonable compromise.
(I had to throw that one out too.)
“You know I had a similar issue once.”
“How did you deal with it?”
“Same basic idea. The difference is I just made the next girl use the same toothbrush.”
“That’s gross, making them share a toothbrush.”
“Any more disgusting than making them share my cock?”
