Kim Kardashian’s fling with Halle Barry’s ex, model Gabriel Aubry, may have ended this week, but Kardashian is spending no time mourning.  Only hours after news of the breakup surfaced, Kardashian was working at the Whisper Lounge at The Grove in LA to promote her new watch line with Brissmor Company.  Us Weekly reported that the reality star is just having fun dating.  “My favorite part about being single is just that I can focus on work and not feel guilty,” said Kardashian.

Is it okay to focus on your career while in a relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

It’s tough to balance your personal and professional lives.  How can you walk that fine line between a relationship and a career?  Here are a few tips:

1. Don’t mix the two: Though the stress of keeping up with your job and relationship may be getting to you, it’s important not to complain too much.  By frequently mentioning your partner at work, you become unprofessional, and by mentioning your boss to your boyfriend, you become boring.  Keep the two lives as separate as possible.

2. Find extra time: Every now and then, you will have to put extra energy into either your relationship or your career.  Staying late to help make copies or run a meeting will assure your boss that you’re dedicated, just as preparing an especially thoughtful date will encourage your partner.

3. Prioritize: In some cases, you will not be able to balance both a relationship and your career.  If this is the case, you will need to prioritize.  It may be hard to put your career before your boyfriend or vice versa, but it might be necessary depending on the situation.
