Megan Rapinoe: Her Dating Life and Girlfriend
Megan came out as a lesbian in an interview with Out magazine on 2 July 2012. Further, she also revealed her relationship with Australian football player Sarah Walsh since the year 2009.
In contrast, the relationship couldn't last long. They were together for almost five years and broke up in 2013.
Later on, she started dating Sue and the news was revealed during an interview on ESPNW when the WNBA all-star Sue Bird declared she's gay and she's dating soccer star Megan Rapinoe.
"I'm gay. Megan's my girlfriend. ... These aren't secrets to people who know me," Bird told Voepel. "I don't feel like I've not lived my life."
"I think people have this assumption that if you're not talking about it, you must be hiding it like it's this secret. That was never the case for me."
Bird encountered Megan briefly in 2016 and later at the Rio Olympics. Rapinoe shared,
"We have a lot in common and just sort of clicked. I joke she is my No.1 go-to-for-advice person. She's just so level-headed."
Previously, Rapinoe was engaged to singer-songwriter Sera Cahoone. She announced the engagement via Instagram post in August 2015. However, the engagement was called off.
As of now, Megan is in a stable relationship with Sue and we wish all the happiness for the couple.

The last couple of days have been hard to wrap my head around, that this is in fact America, always has been. Hard to wrap my head around the fear people are feeling, the heartache they feel, the sense of unknown and uncertainty. Hard to understand why and how this nation chose division and hatred instead of unity but we did and we have to understand why. Understand one another, and be open hearted and open minded. I will never stand for some of the horrible things the President Elect has said and done and no one ever should. I will work in my public and private life to heal wounds, create understanding, and ultimately try to help us come together, because until we can empathize with one another and understand a better world means a world for everyone, every race, gender, religion, orientation etc, we will continue to have hatred rule our beautiful country. Don't give in to fear, not even for one damn second. Stand tall be smart be open hearted be brave be compassionate and fight like hell. Be the kind of person you want America to be.
Similarly, she was inducted into the National Gay and Lesbian Sports Hall of Fame in 2015.
Megan has also appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Today Show, The Rachel Maddow Show, and Good Morning America.
