Everyone wants to put their best foot forward on a first date; one YourTango writer recounts how on a recent date she was asked point blank to sell herself.

My first over-the-phone conversation with the lawyer should have set the red flags a-wavin'. He had a very specific list of rules for women he dated:

• No chipped nail polish.

• Must maintain slim, hourglass body.

• Must be fashionable and put together.

• Women were not allowed to go number two at his house. Or use the master bathroom for any reason.

• Sex usually happens in the first two weeks.

Um, what? Is this real life?
