☆ talk someone into  ~を説得する
When we talk someone into something, it means we persuade them to do something – usually something wrong or stupid or something that they don’t really want to do. Here are some examples:
He talked me into taking the job. (The person didn’t want to take the job for some reason.)
She talked me into moving to the countryside. (The person didn’t want to move (from the city) to the countryside.)
She talked me into running a marathon. (The person thinks a marathon will be too hard for them.)
Have you been talked into something by someone? What was it? In the end, how did you feel about it? Did you regret it or were you happy you did it? I talked my neighbor into running a marathon, and I’m fairly sure she loved it and doesn’t regret it… I hope not!
