While Shookus, 37 was having a good time with her colleagues at ritzy Maestro's Steakhouse in Midtown Manhattan, New York, her famous beau was thousands of miles away.
Affleck has reportedly returned to the West Coast to attend a rehab after fears that he has started drinking too much again.
The pair had spent a few romantic days in New York before he jetted away from his blonde girlfriend.
The 37-year-old seemed to be staying upbeat as she mingled with friends outside the glitzy venue.
Shookus wore a bright coat with a black sweater, skin-tight black leather pants and black high heels, accessorizing with a black leather handbag.
Despite being without her guy she seemed to be in good spirits as she joked with colleagues outside the restaurant.
Shookus and Affleck have been dating for five months.
