is this sentence correct? "If I asked a girl then she shown me a picture I would be upset." I don't think it is correct to say "shown" here, but i saw it from some native speaker. Hmmm weirdddd, plz help!

Being a native use of English doesn't mean one uses the language correctly. The sentence is a mess, and the other commenters have made good suggestions.

If you want totally correct grammar, then the sentence should be: "If I had asked a girl, then she had shown me a picture, I would have been upset." (this situation is not what actually happened but what the speaker imagined would have happened if these things had happened.)

I don't understand the sentence or what you are trying to say. Here are two grammatically correct sentences, but I am not sure this is what you mean.. Without context, the sentence is a bit weird. In the sentence you have above, "shown" is not right. If I asked a girl and she showed me her/a picture, I would be upset. If I asked a girl to show me her/a picture, I would be upset.
