Please help me to understand. My full sentence is "... as someone who don't/ doesn't only love his...". I have already tried them both and both sounds right.

Don't (do not) is the plural form, doesn't (does not) is the singular. She does, he doesn't, they do, they don't.

  • And, especially relevant to the question, someone does and someone doesn't. – Jason Bassford Apr 28 at 14:16
  • But "I do" and "you do" are both (usually) singular. – James K Apr 28 at 21:33
