When I deadlift, my legs are usually not straight out from my body in between my arms. They are usually pointing out, like my thighs are making a V shape. Should I force myself to make them straight? Doing it that way feels totally unnatural to me.

Ok, I guess that's what I meant. My stance is so wide that my legs point out but it's the only way I can do them so as long as it's ok I'm fine. Now I just have to find out a good weight to do, is there any decent way to do that without risking screwing something up? I mean since it's been awhile since I did any deadlifts I started with 215 today and did three sets of 10, and my last set I did half a power clean to get a better grip (I know I should use chalk or an over/under grip) halfway through and I still had enough gas to get 4 more reps. Not sure how much higher I should try because the initial lift is such a bitch.
If you can't tell, I hate deadlifts. I know they're important so I'll stick with them.
