I cut myself for a long time when I was a teenager. I spent a lot of time in treatment working through my issues and I am still on medication. I have scars mainly on my upper arms and legs. I am a generally honest person and I like to be upfront about things. I am comfortable talking to people about my history and my scars. I am worried that talking about it or telling someone I am dating about my scars will freak them out and drive them away. Would you ever date someone knowing they have a history of self harm?

That would not be a deal breaker for me. Everyone has some kind of mental issue. The thing is most people's issues aren't serious enough to get them into treatment. Most people never face their demons. You have. It took courage and it takes courage to be honest about that with a man. Any man for whom that is a deal breaker is not worth crying about.1
