Relationship Protocol: Have You Ever Accidentally Injured Each Other?

When you're a kid, getting hurt is inevitable; you run, jump, fight with your siblings and wrestle with your friends. As adults, our play is usually more relaxing and less agressive, but I'm sure most of us still engage in some roughhousing with our significant others every now and again.

Just like our parents warned us as children, as soon as people get rowdy someone's likely to get hurt. And the physically closer you are to someone, the more chances you'll have of accidentally injuring them. To me, the only thing worse than hurting myself is inadvertently hurting someone else, so tell me, have you or your significant other mistakenly injured the other when goofing around?

I punched, kicked, and crushed his genitals more times than I can remember. All accidentally, though! I also once tried to climb his face to sit on his head (yeah, sounds weird in print), and I jammed a finger into his eye and burst some blood vessels. He was also joking around and punched me in the face, giving me a cut. He's also punched/ kicked my clitoris a few times, and it hurt A LOT! We're definitely accident-prone!

Haha I had a blackeye from playing racquetball with him and getting smacked in the face with the ball. It was bad because it happened right before I was meeting a bunch of people in my program for the first time...oh yeah it's so fun explaining how your bf gave you a blackeye to people barely know. Wear goggles kids!

My BF and I are constantly injuring each other, but rarely is it ever serious. I've accidentally smacked him in the nethers, he's headbutted me and snapped me with a towel a bit too hard. I think I hit HIM on accident more often than he does me, but he's tough, so it doesn't usually do any permanent damage. We always feel really bad afterward. LOL.

My husband always lays on my hair when we're in bed and that is never pleasant. He also always puts all his weight on his elbows when he shifts his weight and that always digs into me or pinches my fat. We tend to hurt each other really minorly all the time because he's a wuss and I always wince when something doesn't really hurt that bad.

My husband and I were wrestling in bed one night which I know sounds childish but we were just having fun having a pillow fight and stuff and he accidentally bonked me in the eye with his forehead. It gave me a black eye for a bout a week and he apologized profusely which really wasn't necessary because it was completely and accident and I actually thought it was kind of funny after it stopped stinging. I think stuff like this happens all the time it's just part of life

My ex smacked a weight bar into my face when I was spotting him on the bench press and chipped my front two teeth!! I am permanently scarred by him... he finds this amusing. :p Me and my boyfriend engage in a lot of... intentional hurting? So yeah, we've never done anything by accident. ;p

Oh my gosh, we hurt each other all the time because we're always play fighting. Although, the worst thing I've done to him was I made him fall when we were rollerblading and he sprained his ankle. He almost couldn't walk for our high school graduation, as it happened about 5 days before the ceremony! Earlier this year, he froze a can of soda and he wanted to cut it open to eat it. I was so amused and I followed him into the kitchen to watch him slice it open...he dropped the knife onto my toe...and I was wearing flip flops. I didn't lose my toe, but I won't go into any more details. We actually laugh about it now, but he still feels really bad!

Lots of minor cuts and bruises because we actually wrestle sometimes (and I never win,) but that's all!

Over the past eight years my husband and I have accidentally injured each other a number of times, but never anything that required bandages or doctor visits!

OMG just a few weeks ago my bf was tickling me and I accidentally hit his chin with my head and he chipped a tooth! It's not that bad (barely noticeable) but I felt SO bad ... and offered to pay for it if he has to get it fixed! He has accidentally burned my arm before transferring a hot pan and that made me really angry lol - but he did feel really bad.

Once when I was going up the stairs, my husband ran up behind me and bit me on the butt--hard. He didn't mean to, but man it hurt. I cried and he felt awful!

Just last weekend, he was on my laptop, I was being snuggly and decided to ruin the moment by tickling him. He reacted like anyone would, and jerked up his hand.... right into my eye. It wasn't blackened, but it hurt for a couple of hours!

We accidently hurt each other a lot. We like to play fight when we're bored sometimes and, like our mothers warned us, someone always gets hurt!

This happens ALL the time! I don't think I have ever done anything to hurt him too, too badly. I know I have kicked him in the balls on more than one occasion. I have had the same sex situation as another poster. His penis fell out, and he was rushing to get it back in, just in the wrong hole. He did it so hard and so fast, I couldn't sit comfortably for a few days.

My now Ex and I were fooling around in the car and well lets just say when I was helping him pull his pants up and helping him zip up, his package got caught in the zipper. It was dark obviously and I didn't think IT got caught. A vision of "There is something about Mary" came to my mind, but thankfully it wasn't that bad and he recovered.

I stubbed a toe chasing my husband around our apartment. Lol. And, I accidentally dropped an economy-size shampoo bottle on his foot while we were showering. It slipped out of my soapy fingers. He a got major bruising from that. Hahaha! Makes me laugh when I recall the memory.

My boyfriend and I hurt each other all the time! Usually just little things, but it's funny every time. I guess we're just really clumsy.

Aw! Yeah. Once, my boyfriend was holding me, and I was standing on his feet, and he was walking around. He ended up falling over and hurting himself really badly. I felt so bad. :[ But we laughed about it in the end.
