Though she recently said she's "taking it slow" when it comes to her love life, it seems like Jennie Garth has put some romantic plans into motion after all.
PEOPLE has learned that Garth, 40, is casually dating photographer Noah Abrams, who has shot for publications ranging from Sports Illustrated to Vanity Fair.
A close source confirms that the couple recently met through a mutual friend.
Garth, who split from husband of 11 years, actor Peter Facinelli, last March, recently told ET Canada, "A lot of people have a 'friend' that they want to set me up with, so it's kind of weird!"

After meeting and greeting throngs of fans waiting for hours outside the San Diego Convention Center, the stars of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed and more, headed to Hard Rock Hotel's Float Lounge to party.
While some (like Peter Facinelli and new dad Jackson Rathbone) skipped the red carpet, newlyweds Reed and hubby Paul McDonald walked together, and the former Idol contestant waited patiently, sipping a drink while his wife did interviews. When she finished, he snaked his arm around her waist, then Reed gave her hubby's butt a little pinch before heading inside the party, where the couple mingled with fellow guests.
Lutz seemingly started the night with dessert: he was spotted snacking on frozen yogurt inside a VIP cabana, though he later grabbed a slider from a waitress's tray.

Jennie Garth doesn't hold back in a new clip from her CMT reality show, Jennie Garth: A Little Bit Country.
Sitting in a circle with two women and her therapist, a teary-eyed Garth, 40, talks about the "sadness" and "anger" she feels about Peter Facinelli filing for divorce in March.
"I think with any sort of rejection, you're angry that you weren't enough for that person," she says in the episode airing Friday at 9 p.m. "So I don't know if I'm angry at myself for not being enough, or if I'm angry at him for not considering me to be enough."

If Alec Baldwin is looking for a worthy Words With Friends opponent, Peter Facinelli might just be up for the challenge.
The Scrabble-like game is his go-to when he's waiting for a flight. (As opposed to on the flight, a move that got Baldwin kicked off an American Airlines plane last December.)
"I really get into the zone," Facinelli, 38, tells The New York Times in a Frequent Flier column. "I was so into the zone once that I didn't realize it was time to board a flight."

Jennie Garth can talk about her divorce from Peter Facinelli, but weeks after turning 40, there's one thing she says she won't be sharing: her birthday wish.
However, now that she's marked the milestone, she says she's discovered a sense of certainty and confidence.
"What a great time in a woman's life. I wasn't sure what was going to happen or how I was going to feel about it," the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star told reporters Thursday. "But now having turned the corner, it's really empowering."
That inner strength has come in handy. "I have been working toward that, pulling that strength up for a few years now, going through everything that I have been going through," she added. "I really feel that I am in touch with it now."

Although she can't say she's happy to discuss her divorce from Peter Facinelli, Jennie Garth does find the topic is unavoidable.
"That is probably the hardest part about [the split], actually, the timing of everything," the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star said on Today Tuesday while promoting her new CMT reality show.
"When I started to take this show on, I wasn't headed down this road," Garth, 39, says about her marital split after the couple were together for 17 years in all, 11 of them as man and wife.
"It happened in the middle of filming the show, and now part of doing any kind of job as an actress is following through and doing the press circuit for the show, doing interviews, and people want to talk about it.
"And, I am okay talking about it, but it's certainly not ... something you want to talk about."

A cool leather jacket, gently tousled hair and a cocktail: These were the props for Peter Facinelli's night out on the town a week after filing for divorce from wife Jennie Garth.
Just after 8 p.m. Thursday night, Facinelli arrived solo a Hennessy-sponsored party at the Highline Studios in New York City. Wearing slate-gray jeans and a black leather jacket, the sedate-looking actor, 38, posed for photos on the black carpet before heading inside the party.
Facinelli spent time mingling and engaged in earnest conversation with an older male pal while lounging on a sofa in a roped-off V.I.P area.
