33-year-old Daiwon Mcpherson says he was compelled to propose to his girlfriend of 5 years, 28-year-old Shawna Blackmon, to show her how much he changed after years of hurting her.
” [I had] to try and gain my woman’s trust back and show her that I have really changed,” he said. “This was my last chance so I made every sacrifice I could to show her.”
Listen, I’m all for out-of-the-box proposals, but this is plain stupid. Stupid and offensive. Why this man though that THIS was the way to his woman’s heart is beyond me. If this proposal is a reflection of his decision-making skills, I could not be Miss Shawna Blackmon. Nope. Couldn’t be me.
Hey, Boo! My name is Lisa and you’ve stumbled upon my own little corner of the world. I’m a 30 something-year-old writer/mother/wife who happens to love lipstick, high heels, blackness, and the truth. You’ll find a mix of everything on this site, so I won’t bore you by trying to define this space. I hope you stay awhile!
