a great approach
I read today a nice phrase; "The best way to learn a foreign language is .. to fall in love with a native speaker !" This is a great approach!
that will certainly be a motivation to speak, but it can produce its own difficulties.
For example, I feel "love" for many the friends that I chat with; but I have a difficult task.
I must teach speaking and writing and thinking. So, I have to abandon my wish to simply chat and offer "friendly" conversation, so that I can teach ideas, and terminology that will be of value.
So I suggest that if you love one language partner, that you also use one or two more whose primary interest is helping you learn a language.
I have also known students who have used language formus to meet someone to love.
I have had to sit in chats on Skype, while the student poured out their story of heartbreak and devastating pain, about their long-distance lover breaking off the engagement.
