    I've never had anyone touch mine, but I think ti would depend on a few things. Who the person is, how you feel about your cuts/scars, and the reason for them touching the cuts/scars.

    If say, Erin(the girl I like) was to touch my scars during that period where I wasn't cutting (and thus didn't feel so stupid/hurt/angry about them) and she was touching them because she was concerned (she's a cutter, so I doubt it'd fall into physical concern, more emotional), then I wouldn't mind, I'd probably enjoy it.

    But if Doc. Roberts (my therapist) was to touch them, now(whilst I have some open ones and bad feelings towards them) and she was touching them because she was concerned (about the physical state, not the emotional one) then I wouldn't like it.

    But if anyone touches any open wound on my body for any reason, I tend to feel icky about it, because I can be a germaphobe at times.

    I've seen that movie, I thought it was good. ^-^

    Have you seen 'Shake Hands with the Devil' ? I watched it in school, and the scene where he cuts himself was so triggering I was ready to cut myself even with the teacher watching... luckily, no knives.

    I really like Thirteen. It's one of my favorite films.

    And the part where she kisses her cuts.. I cry every time again. I think it's beautiful.

    i remember the first time my mom saw mine , they were just starting to heal, and she forced my sleeves up even tho i was trying to stop her. i dont think i would mind my therapist looking at them, or even touching them (she nevers asks if she can see them, but if she did, i would be fine with it). shes looking out for my physical and emotional well-being. but anyone else looking or touching them? and kissing them? not a chance. not even my mom.

    Heh, my mom did the same..It was really weird, she was touching them and stuff, not fun, at all..Same with my counselor, I mean, she didn't force my sleeves up, but when she saw she was touching them. It makes me feel really awkward.

    No one has ever touched mine. When my mom saw them for the first time she just gave me some nasty look. If she did touch them, or if anyone did for that matter, it'd probably make me really uncomfortable.

    Only one or two people looked at them but no one touched them, though I wouldn't mind if the person is close from me.

    iv seen that movie, and thought that part was strange too.
    when i did cut myself once, no one touched my cuts, it would have made me very uncomfortable!

    my gf didn't know anything about self harm or anorexia when i met her, she didn't know anything about me really (i can remember meeting her for the first time and just being awestruck at her beauty :laugh: [i was expecting a brown-blonde haired country girl from Bath but i met this woman with these melty eyes who looked like a boy] to the point where i copied all her clothes and i mean her boots they just turned me on :laugh:) but she was the most open (when i mean open i mean a person who just didn't have a clue about self harm and wanted to know me as an individual) kind person around at that time and she kissed and stroked my cuts and said i looked like i tiger and she made me cry just by being her. which is just sweet and honest and not wanting to dominate or change me but her concern you know. without her i wouldn't be here.
