BACKGRID Brett Oppenheim and Samantha Abdul
Brett Oppenheim has a new leading lady in his life.
The Selling Sunset real estate agent, 45, was spotted out at dinner on August 13 with tattoo artist Samantha Abdul in Beverly Hills.
The two were dressed in all black with Abdul wearing a figure-hugging dress paired with heels and a sparkling purse while the reality star wore a button-up dress shirt and dark pants.
A source close to Abdul tells PEOPLE that the two met in July while vacationing in Mykonos, Greece, and "they clicked right away." Abdul is based in Hamburg, Germany, but she and Oppenheim have been meeting up around the world, including on a recent trip to Budapest, Hungary. "They have seen each other several times since they met in spite of the big distance," says the source. "They enjoy each other's company and love spending time together."
Still, the source says that "at the moment they want to take things slow and see where it takes them."
Abdul already has a child but "has no plans for any further kids of her own," the source adds, noting this "definitely takes a lot of pressure off the relationship. They can completely concentrate on getting to know each other."

The source said that even before meeting Brett, Abdul had been considering opening up her own tattoo shop in L.A. and moving to the city, though now she is "even more determined to take this big step."
The budding relationship comes months after Brett announced his split from model Tina Louise in an Instagram story in December in response to a follower's question.
The former couple had been dating publicly since April 2021.
Shortly after announcing that breakup, Brett took to Instagram to share a tribute to his now-ex girlfriend that celebrated their lasting friendship.
In a post featuring five photos of the ex-couple, he outlined the things he still loves about Louise.
"Tina is the most genuine, loving, beautiful woman I could have ever dreamed of, with the most breathtaking smile. I will always love her and be her friend," he wrote alongside the photo gallery.
The caption addressed Louise directly. "I am grateful for you Tina," he wrote. "For your love, your laugh, your smile, and for our enduring friendship."
The message appeared to be well-received by his ex. "Awwww you lil s- - - ! Love you always x ❤️," Louise commented.
Jason has also been involved in a new romance after splitting from his Selling Sunset co-star Chrishell Stause in December. He is dating model Marie-Lou Nurk after the pair also met in Mykonos, where they were photographed kissing.
They made their red carpet debut as a couple at the Los Angeles premiere of Netflix's Day Shift earlier this month.
