Is there any way to setup outlook to directly maintain gmail contacts WITHOUT syncing?

I have two outlook profiles (one for work(exchange) and one for gmail (personal).

For my personal gmail outlook profile, it created a personal.pst, with my gmail account as a separate hive.  I can drill down through that to get to the folder of mail, but when I add a contact, it goes into my local personal.pst and NOT my gmail.

Because I switch between two outlook profiles (work and personal gmail),  I don't want to use the gmail contact syncing tool because I fear it might accidentally sync my personal gmail to work if my work profile is active when the sync fires.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
