Please look at the statement which I know is ok.

  • I'm not going anywhere without you!

The second one I am not sure about is:

  • I don't go anywhere without you!

Are they both correct?

  • Thanks. What about no and none? – Arcadio Nov 11 '17 at 19:32
  • Ask one question at a time. Please split your question into two separate ones but check for duplicates. – SovereignSun Nov 11 '17 at 19:38

These are both "correct", after a fashion, but "I don't go anywhere without you" is an unusual phrasing that would only be appropriate in a specific context:

A: Do you understand? Are my instructions clear?
B: I understand -- I don't go anywhere without you.

We can assume that, previously, A told B, "Don't go anywhere without me", and so B is simply repeating A's instructions back to him.

Otherwise it would be more natural to say

I will not / won't go anywhere without you.

or, more formally:

I shall not / shan't go anywhere without you.
