I'm not cutting anymore so I'm not sure if it's really that important but tell me if you guys would want to know if your girlfriend was doing the same.

This comes down to two really important things. The first, how long have you known this person? Did you guys know each other before dating, and how long have you dated? Second, how much do you trust this person? When you tell someone that you've been cutting, it can come off as really negative, as most people really just want help, the wonderful media has made it almost like a disease. I've worked in a psych hospital for several years now. My focus is suicidal teenagers, so I've met my fair share of people who've cut themselves for almost every reason you could imagine. Why you were cutting isn't important, it's that you are not doing it anymore and you're doing your best to stay away from those actions again. And that is your focus when you eventually tell him. Because you will need to tell him eventually, better it comes from you than someone else by mistake. So make sure you take your time in letting him know and when you do, re-enforce your assurances that those days are long gone. You'll be fine, just make sure you're very comfortable with him and he is with you too.1
