Like The Suit, she’s an aggressive, high-functioning, time-strapped professional, and she found that men who worked downtown were more likely to share her pragmatic approach to dating. Giving Tinder conquests nicknames helps Valerie and her girlfriends keep track of who’s who during their daily debriefs. There was Miami Vice (drove a white Range Rover and had a slicked-back ’80s hairdo), Bromeo (who bragged about his designer loafers) and Sweater Vest—a nice guy who took her to the AGO and invited her to a friend’s housewarming party, but ultimately, Valerie didn’t feel a spark. She says a lot of guys she meets approach dating like an investment, and she checks a lot of boxes—she’s smart, career-driven and a knockout, with Barbie-blond hair and Brooke Shields brows. For Valerie, the advantage of conducting her sex life through her smartphone is that it allows for maximum productivity with minimal effort.
Mark Yagalla (pictured in Thailand this week) is currently writing a book about his wild ride from being a kid on a Pennsylvania tree farm to the lavish lifestyle he led with Sandy Bentley, one half of the Playboy Playmate Bentley twins. I keep saying I've had it up to HERE with men, don't want to meet anyone new, I want to be single FOREVER. So a girlfriend wants to set me up with what is supposed to be "The Perfect Man". So my girlfriend asks today "Can I give him your phone number? " None, I don't want to waste good perfume, or good lip gloss, tell him Saturday at 2 PM. Ended in tears: Mark Yagalla thought he had found true love in Sandy Bentley (left, with twin Mandy, right) but when he was arrested for embezzling clients, their relationship ended and he has not had contact with her since Early influences: Mark Yagalla had many inspirations for his life as a trader, including the 1987 film Wall Street starring Michael Douglas (right) and real-life trader Jean-Claude Hauchecorne (left), a Vancouver stockbroker who over-manipulated stocks Cousino was one of several women Yagalla put on what he called 'the programme': he bought them an expensive house, a luxury car, and gave them monthly allowances on a credit card, and other extravagant gifts. Sandy and sister Mandy were the tall blonde twins who spent most of 19 as Playboy founder Hefner's alleged live-in lovers, although Sandy told Yagalla they didn't sleep with Hefner and when the pair graced the Playboy cover in May 2000, she was with Yagalla.During their 14 month relationship, Yagalla bought Sandy a house in the exclusive, gated Spanish Trails, Las Vegas, a Mercedes, a red Ferrari Spyder, a Range Rover, a Cadillac, fur coats including a mink and a chinchilla, designer clothes, Rolex watches, and platinum and diamond bracelets and necklaces.He was an 18-year-old virgin who said 'girls don't like me' when he went to a nursery convention with his cousins and was taken off to a strip club.He ended up with a call girl in a mink coat, who he paid for because he had his father's credit card memorised.If a prospect seems promising, she might agree to a future drink.If not, he’s eliminated from the “roster,” which is the term Valerie and her friends use to describe the collection of Tinder guys they are simultaneously messaging or dating.The boy from the US backwater who became Wall Street's 'Teflon kid', made million, stole Hugh Hefner's playmate girlfriend and lived a life of staggering excess until he was jailed, has a message for Australian investors.Yagalla is only 36 years old but has a lifetime of experience making and spending money, and has tips on both who to trust and how to recognise the warning signs around investment schemes that are going to lose you your life savings.
