What is it that you expect from your partner?
It's been my experience that there are two kinds of interactions and becoming acquainted with the potential language exchange partner.on the one hand you have people want to socialize and not necessarily contribute to the development of the host speaker. On the other hand you have those rare few who are willing to donate their time and effort to help you learn to maximize your understanding and ability. I've had problems with both the former and the latter. I find that a mixture of the two is the best possible potential partner. We seldom have things perfect, nothing is ever ideal. All we can do is encourage each other motivate each other and perhaps even coax each other guide each other to help suit our needs. I welcome both types of language exchanges other you can hardly call the former a true language exchanger. But the goal has always been to communicate so sometimes when you meet a language exchanger who has superior ability in your native tongue and he all you can really do to be equitable is either let them pass by or entertain them and talk. Sometimes I meet these people and their own ability to speak my language far surpasses my ability to understand there's. Well anyways it's been an interesting journey and I hope...
