Hope Solo is looking for love.
That's not us talking. That's direct from the U.S. soccer goalie who was the recipient of multiple marriage proposals and formal invitations during the women's World Cup last summer.
In an interview with dating-advice site YourTango.com, Solo said her schedule is crazy as she prepares for the Olympics but can make time for other interests, including romance.
"I can't be all soccer -- go, go, go, go -- I need a social life," she said. "I need a life outside of soccer. So I very much welcome, you know, new love interests and dating and friends and family."
Helping the U.S. finish second at the World Cup boosted Solo's status from soccer star to cultural phenom. She appeared nude in ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue and placed fourth with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy on "Dancing With The Stars."
