Donell’s relationship with his wife has been one that many couples struggle with. He says, “In my own marriage, I have learned to love and protect my wife, yet I am deeply drawn to her in a way that is uncommon in the world. I have learned that my wife and I must be both strong and vulnerable.” It’s interesting that he has found a way to deal with the need to be strong in his marriage, yet also find a way to be vulnerable.
And I think that really sums it up for me. This is what I mean when I say that every relationship has a “hidden message.” When we’re in love, we often go out of our way to hide the truth from each other. I think this is something Donell and I have learned to deal with. In my own marriage, I have learned that love and respect need not be mutually exclusive.
I think Donell and I are in a good place in the relationship. I’ve been able to accept that he is a bit like my brother and I want the same things from him as he wants from me. And I think this has helped us both be a little more vulnerable with each other. In fact, I think I’m doing more than Donell. I’m so grateful that he’s willing to be vulnerable with me, even when I’m not happy.
That’s a common problem I’ve encountered in relationships that have gotten too serious. One person in particular has been a bit of a hard sell. He’s too serious about everything and has become so overbearing that I’m afraid I’ve become almost a caricature of myself. I feel bad for him! I’ve been in a relationship that has been very serious for a few years now and I’ve never thought that I would be this way with anyone.
Donell Jones has been in a long-term relationship with me for 4 years now and he’s doing it for my sake. He wants to get to know me better and Im glad because Ive been very happy with my relationship with him. I just hope that I dont get too serious and lose sight of what Im actually good at. Ive always thought I was good at making my own decisions and Im really not.
I just want to say that I love Donell and Im so happy that Ive got a great relationship with a guy that Ive been with for such a long time. Its so nice to know that Im making the right decisions and Im getting to know someone who I really care about.
Donell loves everyone and cares about them. You can take it back. He’s just a big, caring, self-centered jerk.
The relationship between Donell and Ravi is a good example of what I was talking about. Donell is an amazing guy and the sort of guy that I want to be with, but he has a lot of issues. Ravi is a great guy and he genuinely cares about everyone. He just can’t seem to deal with the fact that Donell is good at everything.
The two are actually pretty good. The only thing that could ruin that would be if they ended up being together because of some huge mistake. That may actually happen in the story though.
