Mistakes to avoid when trying to Convince Your Girlfriend to Send Pictures

Be assured that the tricks above work, it does not matter whether you need your girlfriend’s nude pictures or whatever. But whichever way the case may be, you will be shown how to convince your girlfriend to send photos, especially the images of her sexy and mouthwatering body.

The First mistake to avoid

Not Extolling Your Girlfriend Enough

I think it is not too late for you to know that girls love to be praised like the angel they are. I don’t believe this line made any sense to you, so I’ll construct another one to explain the first line.

What I wrote above meant that ‘your girlfriend’ lo

What I wrote above meant that ‘your girlfriend’ loves it when you praise her like the angel she is. I’m sure the message is more evident now.

Before you proceed with this guide on how to convince your girlfriend to send pictures, go and worship her, if you’ve never done that. Believe me; if only you had extolled her well enough from the start of your relationship, you’d never be here soliciting for help on how to convince your girlfriend to send pictures.

A good example derived from various studies is that the body part girls love to picture and send to their boyfriends most is their breasts, followed by the nipples. If you’ve never seen a photo your girlfriend’s boobs and nipples, you’ve got to up your game in praising her looks a lot. Not that she is unaware of the whole thing though, she’s not sure of sending it to you since you are not giving her the green light by extolling her.

Other reasons could be:

  • Hiding your dirty side from her.
  • Putting on a holy Reverend-like attitude before your girlfriend.
  • Thinking she may not be interested.

2. Ask about the clients’ well-being

If you want to convince people to buy your product, at the beginning of the conversation, while introducing yourself, ask the customer about his/her well-being.

Research revealed that sales increase significantly within the group of customers, who were asked about their well-being. You can also start a conversation on a positive note.

An experiment conducted among waiters showed that positive comments increased the tip by 27%! During the telephone conversation, it works too.

Four things NOT to do when requesting IT training from your manager

  1. Bring up anything salary related. While you may earn a salary increase in time, this is not the time to bring it up. This is not about you. Show your worth, don’t state your worth.
  2. Shine a light on the fact that 62% of unsatisfied employees are extremely likely to be pursuing new opportunities and looking to leave their job.17 This is a subtle threat. You don’t want your boss thinking you’re looking to leave because then you may be leaving sooner than you’d like and not based on your terms.
  3. Act and feel entitled that the company should pay for your training.
  4. Become negative if the training is not approved.
    • Don’t hold it against your boss. Most managers don’t wake up saying, “I can’t wait to say no to training requests today! I don’t want my team to be better.” It simply might be out of their hands or you are unaware of a circumstance within the organization.


You may be thinking “Well, how do I present a training need? Especially if employers find development opportunities expensive?” Let’s get down to business.

The Trick To Convincing Your Mom And Dad To Say Yes To You

People never make decisions based on their conscious reasoning. We do it based on our subconscious thoughts and feelings.

So the trick to convincing your parents to say yes is to ask indirectly. And to first get their subconscious minds altered in your favor so they are more likely to say yes to you. If you are dealing with particularly stubborn parents, this is the only way to persuade them.

We will go over this below in more detail so you find out how easy it is to use on your parents.

This is a powerful approach. Always be honest with your parents. There will still be some things that they say no to. You have to accept their decision knowing that they genuinely care for you. Using any of this deceptively will backfire on you.


People place a much higher value on something that is scarce or not going to be around for long. In your case, that something is you. Remind your parents how little time they have left with you. They will feel more fond of you and feel like giving you more stuff.

It is best to be indirect. Casually bring up the topic of where you are thinking of going to college. This will automatically remind them of the limited time they have with you. Whatever you ask them in the next few hours will meet less resistance.

8. Present yourself as a business representative, consultant or advisor

If you are still wondering how to convince customer to buy your product, here’s our next tip. 

Just to clarify –  we are not suggesting that you should introduce yourself as a business consultant if you are not working as one, or manipulate and lie about your position. However, there is a huge difference between acting like a professional who represents a company and behaving like a typical, pushy sales representative.

Don’t be a that salesman who brings to mind a walking catalogue of products or services. Don’t be that salesperson who recites a list of items in stock and doesn’t care what their customer needs. Instead this kind of a sales pep only thinks about how to convince the customer to buy your product – example of this can be find anywhere in many articles on „How to convince someone to buy something” – worst practices. 

Think of yourself as an expert with a lot of knowledge. After all, you have experience in the industry you represent, you have a general overview of your sector, while consumers only know a slice of it. Use your hard-earned knowledge to present your recommendations and provide your customers with new information.And it’s not just about trying to play for a sales talk. When you realize how mych experience you have and start believing in yourself more than before, your voice will sound more confident and give your words more persuasive power. You don’t have to think about how to convince people to buy a product anymore, just use your knowledge.

3. Build the reputation for being a great performer

Any boss would trust more a great performer than the average employees.

This is normal:

Heroes get praise and attention.

In an organisation, what I call the “hero effect” is similar to how brands impact consumers.

Your personal brand—i.e. reputation—is the result of how people perceive you at work.

The “hero effect” leads people to valu

The “hero effect” leads people to value you, your work, and your opinion. If something goes wrong, you’ll earn the benefit of the doubt.

In his great book Power (recommended read), Jeffrey Pfeffer highlights with sarcasm that, as long as you keep your boss happy, performance doesn’t matter that much:

“Make sure that those in power notice the good work that you do, remember you, and think well of you because you make them feel good about themselves. It is performance, coupled with political skill, that will help you to rise.”

Getting noticed is primordial.

The more you see and hear about it, the more you trust it.

And the best way to get your boss’s attention is to pay attention to what your boss cares about.

If you are looking for inspiration, besides reading Power, I also recommend that you read Tribes. In this book about leadership, Seth Godin tells stories of people who have had a significant impact within and beyond their organization.

Keep in mind:

Bosses are more likely to consider ideas from those they see as the best in their team. It depends on two things:

1. The quality of your work—what you do; 2. How your boss sees the results—what people say about you.

Building a good reputation takes time. Be patient. Match the size of your suggestion to the quality of your reputation.

2. Show people that you truly care about them and their needs

Even after people decide to go ahead and start listening to you, they will still be questioning why they should actually care about the issue. They will have internal objections that are wholeheartedly disconnected from the eye contact and assertive listening techniques you might see them employing. If you haven’t yet put in the work to confirm they know you care, don’t be fooled into thinking you can skip this step.

After you have their attention, it is incumbent upon you to help them see that you care. The best way to show that you care is to start listening to the people you want to persuade. In order to persuade people, you have to understand their challenges, struggles, pain points, etc. And then you need to ask thoughtful, open-ended, questions that serve to expand the conversation toward an area close to where you want to go.

You will know when listeners start to feel and believe that you care because they will begin sharing more. If you listen with intent, your audience will surely tell you where they want to go. And when you are real good (leading with influence), they will actually let you take them where you want to go. Of course, there should be mutual interest and clear commonalities in where they believe they want to go and where you want to take them or an explanation for the disparities. The big takeaway here is that you must first care about your audience and their needs before you should ever expect them to care about yours.

If you fail to demonstrate that you care by understanding and appreciating their needs and interests, you won’t even need to worry about the following step because they will surely never trust you.

8. Derisk the decision for your boss

Low risk, high reward.

These are the characteristics of a decision that is easy to make.

The reward is how helpful your idea is to your boss: Does it help her achieve her goals? Does it solve one of her problems? Does it make her look good inside and outside the company?

The risk involves costs, the likelihood of failure, and the consequences of failing.

The lower the risk, the more convincing your idea will be. So find ways to lower how risky the idea is. One way of achieving this is by experimenting.

Prove Your Value Over Time

Once you’ve figured out how to truly be more effective, Carson suggests taking six months to prove how well you’re doing. “Then you have this huge social capital with your boss,” he says. “You’ve proven your effectiveness, you’re making them look great, you’re delivering huge amounts of value. Then I think you can approach the subject and say “You know what? What would make me even more effective is if I could allocate some of my time once a month to make my marriage better, making my relationships with my kids stronger. And I would like your permission just to try it once next month.”

Article SummaryX

If you want to convince your friends you’re a mermaid, commit to learning as much as you can about mermaids so you’ll be able to answer any questions about the mermaid lifestyle. Before you adopt a mermaid identity, think about what kind of mermaid you are. For example, you can pretend to be a tropical, arctic, or deep sea mermaid, all of which have a unique look and background. To get a mermaid look, grow your hair out as long as you can and accessorize with ocean-colored ribbons, sea creature clips, and shells. If someone asks where you got your shells, say “home” and change the subject to make them think you’re a mermaid. Since mermaids transform into their true selves when they touch water, act nervous around water as if touching it would expose your secret to the world! For more tips, like how to dress like a mermaid, read on!

The takeaways…

This five-step needs’ assessment and persuasion model works for everyone who seeks to affect change and convince others to take action. It is not a manipulation tactic. Whether you are the job applicant trying to persuade the hiring manager to hire you, the manager of sales who wants to implement new communication techniques, the change lead responsible for persuading colleagues on the benefits of your next digital transformation initiative, the HR executive charged with a complete work-design overhaul or the marketing executive leading a new approach to performance, you need to become more persuasive.

This point is worth repeating. Persuasion, while about selling or presenting your ideas, is more about appreciating how to best reach and engage your audience for change. It is your responsibility to be aware of the kinds of questions that start rolling around in your listeners’ heads the moment you start talking to them. If you move forward with your presentation, sales pitch or proposal without considering the needs of your audience, you are likely to fail. If you move forward and make your presentation and recommendations based on the above five-step needs’ assessment and persuasion model, you are much more likely to succeed.
