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.

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."
