verb+object How to use it? when?

Hi, I want to ask a question concerning apparently single verbs: 见面,照相,跳舞,洗澡,帮忙 etc。The examples I know are:

but 我想跟他见一个面。

I was told that I cannot say 我想跟他见面。so I understand I also should say 我想洗一个澡,我快要洗个澡了,我不会跳个舞, 在山上我照了很多相, 帮我个忙。
If its wrong, when should I use this kind of verbs? Can you give some explanation and examples of usage from everyday life?

    Slap the face of that person who told u "我想跟他见面" isn't correct. Well, just a joke. Let's calm to comment on the issue in question.
    Among all the sentences you listed above, only "我快要洗个澡" and "我不会跳个舞" are wrong. You can't use such structures in the tense of proximate future and negative sentences. Hope this helps :)
