Hydrogen in Reaction Mechanisms

Would you ever draw a curved arrow going from Hydrogen to something else or is it only the other way around?

Electrons will never go from hydrogen to something else, but electrons can go from something to hydrogen. A bond between hydrogen and another element can break however, and both electrons from the bond can go to the other element. But, these electrons come from the bond, not the hydrogen.
