Molly & Juli

St. Petersburg, Florida
Molly, 28, Marketing
Juli, 27, Marketing

Molly and Juli met in Boston at a mutual friend’s birthday party. “We were intrigued by one another and eventually pursued a relationship that permanently changed our lives,” says Molly. Both retired soccer players, the girls are passionate about sports, music and their two dogs, Jax & Henry. Laughing and having fun are a priority for Molly and Juli. “Our secret for a successful relationship is booze,” says Juli. “But seriously, it’s just wanting to do whatever makes you happy—sometimes that means putting your pride aside and trying to understand what the other person is truly feeling. And sometimes it means just looking into that person’s eyes and telling her how much you love her.”
