    "Please hit me up with your picutre on" Does this sentence sound right?

    Hi, sometimes people using dating apps say 'No picture No chat' to mean they are not interested in conversation with those without their face picture. But, I just would like to use different expression but and that means the same things I've mentioned earlier, which is the title of this thread. Does that sentence sound natural or if not, how should I change it? Thanks

    Is this what you're looking for?
    "turn somebody on":

    The definition of 'turn somebodyon' says 'especially sexually', so would it suggest a sexy picture if the phrasal verb was used?

    "Hit me up" usually means "Give me ...".

    A: Have you got any beers?
    B: A couple.
    A: Great. Hit me up!

    A means "I now know you have cans/bottles of beer. Give me one of them".

    "Hit me up with your picture" would mean "Send me a photo of yourself". "Hit me up with your picture on" means nothing.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I think 'Hit(somebody)up' also mean 'call somebody'.

    I've never come across it used that way but I don't hang around with people who actually use "Hit me up". I've only read it in books or heard it in films.

    I think some people are probably trying to be different or new. I don't know why though.

    I think this may just be a BrE usage, I've never heard it used this way in AmE.

    In AmE 'hit me up' means to either call someone up or look them up.
    "Hit me up when you're in town."
    "Hit me up on Facebook."

    It can also mean to ask somebody to buy or give something, or to borrow something.
    "He hit me up for a donation." = He asked me to donate money for his charitable cause.
    "He hit me up for a cigarette."= He asked me to lend him a cigarette.

    For me, "please hit me up with a picture" is asking for a photo.
