After being spotted last week on a date at a Beverly Hills restaurant with adult film star Kiara Mia, Jimmy Garoppolo had to answer questions about it as 49ers training camp opened up.

Garoppolo, who is beginning his first full season as his team’s No. 1 quarterback, may not have realized being the face of the franchise means fans and media will care about who you date.

After facing queries about his relationship with Ms. Mia, now he does and called the date and the fallout from it a “good learning experience.”

So what exactly did he learn?

“Just that life is different now – my life off the field,” Garoppolo said. “I’ve never been very big on being really public with things – even social media. I’m not out there a ton. But my life is looked at differently. I’m under a microscope. It’s like [San Francisco coach] Kyle [Shanahan]  said: It is a good learning experience. I just have to take it in stride.”

Garoppolo, 26, inked a five-year, $137.5 million contract extension with the 49ers this offseason so, whether he keeps dating Mia or not, he should be in good shape. 

Regardless of what happens, it sounds like she’ll be rooting for him.
