Vancouver, Canada-based Plenty Of Fish was launched in 2003 by Markus Frind, and currently has more than 3 million active users, according to its website.
“They were really close, talking and laughing.” Foster, 35, most recently dated actress Robin Wright, breaking off their engagement in November 2014 before rekindling their romance last year but then splitting up again.
Prepon, 36, is a practicing Scientologist, while Foster is rumored to be involved with the controversial religion.
Prepon and Foster, who were first spotted in New York together in late June, reportedly got cozy at a bar in Cape May, NJ, ahead of the Fourth of July holiday.
