I've attempted suicide three times now, all just on my wrist, and I didn't want to let anyone know, so I've been wearing a watch for a year now. I have no other self-harm marks, but I was wondering if guys would hate that about me?
Some guys that I overheard said that they hate it when people hurt themselves or try killing themselves because it's selfish and arrogant of them to forget about how much trouble it causes for other people. Does that make it a huge turn off? Or would you still be happy with dating someone like me?

Most of us aren't stupid. We can figure out if you're a headcase after several lengthy conversations, and this past of yours will eventually come up if you hope to secure a long term relationship.
That said, it depends. Why did she attempt suicide and fail three times? Is she seeking therapy? What is her current attitude on the subject? Is she currently well?
If she was still suicidal, I'd plead for her to get help and I wouldn't date her. That's a one-sided relationship that would drain the life out of me. To think that I could say the wrong thing and she would use that as incentive to out herself, or perhaps we could raise a child and one day she forgets her medication and jumps off a bridge, that is needless suffering because I chose to give me love to someone who could never feel loved. I'll pass on that scenario every time, and I hope you understand and avoid only accepting bullshit answers saying "YEAH I'd love a suicidal girl! No problem!"1
