It is common for men to ask for a picture when they are in a relationship. If you think that sending such a picture is not the right thing to do at that time, there are polite ways to say no to him without damaging that relationship. Most people who do not want to be diplomatic on the approach would simply say no. But there are more subtle ways of rejecting that move and here is a review of some of them.
Some people who want to be soft with the approach will also politely say that they will wait, or that they will think about it, and will eventually not send it. If you do not want to be polite and you want to delay until the time for that is ripe, then you can look for excuses until you shelve that idea.
There are different excuses you can give to avoid sending the message. You can tell him that you do not know how best to use your phone picture button. Tell him that you can consider doing that later when you are familiar with your phone. If he does not accept that excuse and tell you to use another person’s phone, you can rebuff that idea by telling him that you do not want your image on another person’s phone.
Furthermore, you can tell him that you can consider that option later and that as of now you do not have time for pictures. Tell him that you are not opposed to that idea only that it is not convenient for you to do right now.
You can tell him that currently, your phone camera system is not working and that the computer or laptop you are using is faulty with the poor lighting system. Convince him to shelf the idea until you put your laptop in order, or until your phone camera system is restored.
Your response will also depend on the kind of pictures he wants you to send. If he is asking for a nude picture of yours, you can tell him that you do not do sexual pictures. This is a good excuse when you are early in that relationship. The response he gives you can determine the way you follow up. If he stops talking to you because of excuses, then you should know that he is not interested in you. If he continues to disturb you, you must keep on manufacturing reasons until you are certain the time to send such a picture has arrived. Be sure of his intentions and where the relationship would lead to before you get personal by sending him your pictures. There are other diplomatic ways of doing that which can force him to stop asking for such pictures in the nearest future.
*Ask him whether he thinks that a gentleman like Carry Grant would demand such a thing
Chances are there that he may not know what Carry Grant was. Remind him that he was a gentleman who would never demand such a thing. Tell him the importance of being a gentleman, and what it means and takes to be one. Tell him that if he ceases to be a gentleman that the next action you will do is to simply cut him off by blocking him on social media networks.
*Send naked John Lennon and Yoko Ono photos to him
You can send to him the naked photo of these two people. This is going to be symbolic and you would also ask him to give peace a chance. It will send an important message to him and this could make him stop demanding such a picture from you. It is a perfect strategy that can work for you until such a time you would be ready to send pictures if you think it can help out in the relationship.
*Pretend as if you do know what he asks for or you do not understand him
You can pretend as if to say that you do understand what he was saying or indeed asking for by nude picture, or pictures. Ask him which pictures. Try to find out why he would want your picture and what does he intend to do with such pictures if he gets one from you. Tell her that you clearly do not get what he was saying or demanding from you. When he receives such a message, it would be very clear to him that you do not have any intention of sending such a picture, and it would force him to stop demanding such a picture in the future if he is not serious about that relationship.
*Tell him ok, I will send you a picture of my breasts
You can promise him you will send to him a picture of your breasts. Tell him they will be in small size and they are juicy. Instead of sending him a picture of your breasts, you can send to him a chicken breast instead. Tell him that this is the breast you brought for dinner and it is technically your breasts. It will send a symbolic message to him and that you are not going to send your breasts to anybody and that this one is merely symbolic. It would force him to stop asking for your picture again.
*Give him a Frank Underwood from the house of cards
When you give him especially one side-eye of Kevin Spacey’s character, it is going to shut him down and he would not demand your picture next time. The message would be very clear to him.
*Tell him to send his own pictures first
You can put him on his toes by asking him to send to you his picture first. If you demand his nude picture first, it would put him off. Since he is not willing to send his own to you, why should he think that you will send yours? His response when you make a demand will determine your next line of action. Chances are there that he would not oblige you with his own pictures and it would form enough reasons to deny sending him your picture.
*You can instead send him the picture of the birth of Venus painting
Tell him that this is what you can lay hands on that day because it was windy and your camera could not take a good picture. Because of that, you want to bridge that problem by sending the Venus picture. This message would be very clear to him and it could make him stop making such a demand in the future.
*You can also send a picture of Michelangelo David statue
A picture is a picture. Where it is difficult for you to lay your hands on your personal picture, you want to send to him what is currently available to you. Tell him that you hope that he will appreciate it because that is the best you can lay your hands on right now.
*Fight it off with politics
Tell him that pictures are not edifying. Tell him that there is the need to make America great again and he can actually partake in making America great again. Tell him that he is not getting pictures because it does not make any difference.
*Tell him passionately that you never send pictures
Tell him that nobody needs to demand pictures from you. This is because you never send pictures online and that you do not have any intention to that right now. Perhaps this can make him stop disturbing you about nude pictures.
When you present him that hard facts, it would put an end to it permanently. Remind him that demanding your picture at this time means that he is being disrespectful of women. Moreover, if he is interested in seeing pictures, there are lots of them online and he can simply Google it to see as many as possible. He should seek such online sites for many pictures as he wants. He should not disturb you again about pictures. When you take this position, it can help you out and it can put a permanent stop to that kind of request. If you take a stand that you do not want that kind of demand, it will make a person stop making such a demand in the future.
These are some of the ways of saying no to a man who demands a picture. If you think that the relationship is not the type that can be productive then you have to be blunt and tell him that you do not like such demands and if he can make such a demand again you will block him. When you think that such a relationship is good and that the type of picture, he is asking for will not damage your reputation, then you can use cunny ways of postponing sending the pictures until the time it is wise to do so.
