The fact that we can see an end to professional playing, she said, “I think, is what keeps us going.”
“All we want is for each other to succeed in our careers.
You couldn’t possibly have a long-distance relationship with someone who didn’t understand sports, in my opinion.
Mewis expressed her wish to the media that being a “out and proud” pair will encourage others to feel confident and at ease with their sexuality.
That would mean a lot to me, she added, “simply being out and being two girls in love. If we can alter one or two people’s life and the way that they feel. About each other and how comfortable they feel.”
I enjoy posting about my relationship on social media.
