VH1 decided not to renew Audrina Patridge self-titled reality show for a second season, but Patridge couldn’t be happier as the cancellation may just be what she needed to repair her on-again, off-again relationship with her boyfriend, BMX rider Corey Bohan.  “Filming a reality show really takes a toll on relationships because your mindset is to create good TV,” the former “The Hills” star told People.  “It’s really really hard on relationships so after the show, Corey [Bohan] and I really worked on what was going on with us. We spent time together.”  Audrina’s breakup with Corey may have been good for her show’s finale, but the couple has since rekindled their relationship and got back together in May.

How do you keep your job from affecting your relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

It’s easy to let your job take over your life.  Cupid has some ways to keep it from affecting your relationship:

1. Try to separate work from home: Sure, everyone has their bad days a work, but try not to bring the stress you may receive at work to your home.  If your job is consistently stressing you out, it may be time to start filling out applications.

2. Balance: Although you may not have finished everything you needed to do at work before your day ended, try to make sure that you when you’re home, you’re relaxing and not thinking about what you will have to do tomorrow.

3. Spend some quality time: It’s extremely necessary to get away at least every once in a while.  Plan a romantic getaway to your favorite vacation spot, organize a date night including dinner and a movie, or simply head to the gym and work out together.
