And I don't mean cutting, but any way one injures themselves like burning, bruising, etc.
Would you date/marry them if it was something they were trying to stop and were working on healthier ways to cope?

I would totally date someone that hurts themselves, because I date people I like as a whole, I mean there's not something that defines a person, there's so much to a person than that, but I would have to like them a lot (I always date people I like A LOT. slight interest is not enough for me) what I'm trying to say here is that I don't think the fact that someone hurts themselves would make me go away if I'm really into that person. Of course we have to consider that if a person hurts themselves that bad is going to have deeper psychological issues and that could really bother me because I like being around people that makes me happy.
I actually was very attracted to a guy that cut himself when I was younger, not because of that though , but because he was dark and mysterious and had a great personality and I thought of him as a very compassionate person, but he was always sad and talked too much about his problems, I tried helping him but it I ended up being depressed whenever I talked to him, so as much as we had chemistry and all I had to let him go, not because he cut himself, but because he wasn't making me happy, in fact on the contrary he made me feel sad.
The fact that the person would be trying to stop and working on it would definetely help and I would make sure I helped them as much as I could to make them better, but again, would put my happiness first, as selfish as that may seem.
Best of lucks to you beautiful stranger :)0
