Christina Milian is a huge fan of girls’ nights out.

The singer-actress, 27, likes to dine out in L.A. with her gal pals when her man isn’t around.

“It’s fun,” she tells me. “You should do it and you need that for yourself. Especially when you come into a relationship, as women, sometimes we get so caught up in our relationship, that we forget the people that are there for you – your friends – or you don’t get time for yourself. For me, I need that. Whenever my girlfriends need me, I want to be there for them, and then just going out … just the energy of it helps me keep my mind off my boyfriend all day. I’m like ‘I miss him, I miss him, I miss him.’ But on top of that, it’s just a great outlet to have your girlfriends.”
