How do you all fare when I comes to relationships? Dose your cutting hold you back? My girlfriend ditched me last week because she walked in on me while I was cutting. That was one of the worst moments of my life, the look on her face, it made me feel pretty bad. She told me she couldn't watch me do this to myself. That lasted for about 2 days, shes already with someone else, that makes me feel worse, I used to think she cared about me, but she cut and ran at the first chance she got. I've never had another relationship, I blame my looks, my height, and my personality. But that said I don't get the chance to meet many girls. I lost most of my friends a couple of years ago when I came out of hospital. I was pissed off that I couldn't even get that right, and I took it out on them. Without my friends I find it hard to meet new people, and my social skills are so far behind now I'm not sure how to act when I do. Every time a girl ever touches me, I jump back like I've been burnt. I worry that if I get to close, they'll find out what I do. I doubt I'll ever be with a girl again, I've got nothing going for me, and when you add in what self harm has done to me, there's not a lot any one would want. Cutting myself is part of me, it's a part I know, and I like that part of myself, but It's ruined so much. Has your cutting affected your relationships?
