Arnold Schwarzenegger's Date Night: Actor Spotted Having Intimate Dinner In Santa Monica (PHOTO)

Arnold Schwarzenegger is back -- in the dating game, that is.

The actor and former governor of California was spotted having an intimate dinner this past weekend in Santa Monica with an unknown blonde, according to TMZ. Schwarzenegger, 65, and his mystery lady dined alone at a trendy hot spot on Montana Avenue.

The Huffington Post reached out to Schwarzenegger's reps Tuesday for official word on the pairing's relationship status but has not heard back yet.

The "Terminator" actor told a prominent German newspaper last month that he is still in love with ex-wife Maria Shriver, but apparently that sentiment has faded somewhat. TMZ reports that the couple have relented on trying to work things out and are instead working to shuffle through financial matters.

Schwarzenegger and Shriver separated in May 2011, after 25 years of marriage, amid allegations that he fathered a child with the couple's former housekeeper. He confessed to the speculation, saying he had already informed Shriver of his infidelity, but shortly thereafter, actress Brigitte Nielsen proclaimed she also carried on an affair with Schwarzenegger throughout his and Shriver's marriage. Despite the split and controversies, Schwarzenegger spent Christmas with Shriver and their four children.

This marks the second time TMZ has spied Schwarzenegger out and about with an attractive bachelorette. He was spotted kissing a brunette in her mid-20s last July.
