Now that Gizelle and Jamal Bryant are dating one another again after being married and divorced, it seems like one party might be progressing a bit faster than the other.
That realization came to a head for the couple as they were on their way to go ring shopping with a “Real Housewives of Potomac” cast member Juan Dixon.
Gizelle: “We been doing this long distance for a minute. I feel good about it. Okay, I’m lying I don’t feel good about it. I have moments where I don’t feel good about it. You’re in another city. There are moments where it’s kind of tough.”
In the confessional, Gizelle says:
“Going ring shopping with Juan, you know I’m happy for Robyn but it makes me realize what I can’t have right now.”
Then to Jamal she says: “I’m missing you. But in all seriousness Jamal, I feel like the only other option is we not continue down this road. But for me that’s not an option. I think I’m the only one feeling this way.”
Jamal: What do you mean?
Gizelle: What do you mean what do I mean?
Jamal: Your battle cry was you needed to protect your space and your priority was safeguarding your individuality. That was your single priority. You didn’t want to lose…
Gizelle: …myself in me and you.
Jamal: Yes. So I have been intentional not to infringe on that.
Gizelle: Okay I appreciate that. But I want you to know, there is no independence and individuality with me anymore in my mind. I feel like, no matter what, we’re together.
Jamal: Come on.
The two fist bump.
Gizelle: Am I the only one?
Jamal: No! I’m here. I’ve been waiting on you. And this is your first time saying this. I don’t assume anything. Don’t assume anything.
Gizelle: I thought you just knew because you just knew me.
Jamal: Unnntt unn I don’t take anything for granted based off of old assumptions. You’re not the same person you were ten years ago. Neither am I. Your progression of thought is a new entity that you have not introduced until 90 seconds ago.
Gizelle: Okay. And how you feel about it?
Gizelle: You know I don’t express myself often.
Jamal: Right. It’s the hermit and the crab.
