Zooey Deschanel has a new man in her life. The actress has moved on from her failed marriage and has reportedly started dating "Dear John" screenwriter Jamie Linden.

On Sunday the couple stepped out together for the first time at a Hollywood afterparty for Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey's new movie "Magic Mike."
In October, the "New Girl" star split from Death Cab For Cutie singer Ben Gibbard, and she filed for divorce in December, citing "irreconcilable differences" for ending her two-year marriage.
A source tells, "Jamie's a really nice guy. He's funny, and a little geeky... He's into her!"

Earlier this year Deschanel admitted she wasn't ready to date yet. She told Marie Claire magazine, "Honestly, I'm just going through a divorce, so I don't really think (dating) is something I want to get into now... I don't have time to date. I literally don't have time."
