Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, who separated in 2010 but still have not filed for divorce, have both found love again.
"They're each dating," a friend of the former couple tells PEOPLE.
Al, 64, has paired up with Democratic and environmental activist Elizabeth Keadle, 53. Tipper, 63, has recently stepped out with former National Geographic editor Bill Allen, 71, who shares the former Second Lady's passion for photography.
A friend of Tipper's says the new couple, who have known each other for years through mutual friends in photography circles, have been out together to D.C. dinner parties.

Former Vice President Al Gore has been cleared of a massage therapist's sexual abuse allegations due to "lack of credible evidence," prosecutors in Portland, Ore., said Friday.
The Multnomah County District Attorney's office said a "sustainable criminal case does not exist" after looking into claims by Molly Hagerty, who alleged Gore, 62, had made "unwanted sexual contact" with her during a massage at his hotel in 2006.
Prosecutors declined to pursue the case after interviewing witnesses who were at the hotel and since Hagerty failed a polygraph test. The D.A.'s office also said forensic testing disputed her accusations.

According to the tabloids, the last straw in Al and Tipper Gore's 40-year marriage was massage therapist Molly Hagerty's claim the former Vice President demanded sexual favors during a 2006 massage in his Portland, Ore. hotel room.
"And they also say Al had an affair with a Tennessee Titans cheerleader one week, a Hollywood producer the next," says a friend close to the Gores.
But, adds the friend, "None of these is true. Both Al and Tipper are baffled by the allegations across the board, frustrated to see his name dragged through the mud."

There is no truth to a tabloid story claiming Al Gore's marriage ended because of a two-year affair with producer Laurie David, her agent tells PEOPLE.
"This report is completely, patently false," says Dorian Karchmar, angrily rejecting the Star magazine report that the former vice president had been seeing David, the ex-wife of Curb Your Enthusiasm's Larry David and a producer of Gore's 2006 Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth.
"I have no idea where it started from or why, but it is absolutely, positively and patently untrue," adds the agent.

Detained American journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee may have become significant players in an international standoff between North Korea and the U.S. over the Asian power's planned launch of a long-range rocket.
Ling, the sister of former The View co-host Lisa Ling, and Lee were captured by a military patrol after allegedly crossing into North Korea from China while shooting a documentary for the Al Gore media venture Current TV.
"From the U.S. perspective, this couldn't have happened at a worse time," says Ralph Cossa of the Pacific Forum/Center for Strategic and International Studies. "We've just handed the North Koreans two trump cards to play which they will use to their maximum benefit."
