Why is it hard to find a language partner on Italki ? I've been requesting alot of people to be my language partner.But no one is willing to. 
Why is it so ?

Hi Sheraz,

Many here (including myself) wish to do language exchange.

If you haven't done so already, try to contact people who are interested in learning your language ('Urdu'), and who can speak English on same or higher level than you. It's also easier if they know at least the basics of your language. Include a short introduction in your private message. If your level of English isn't that high, you can try to do the introduction in your own language.

It could also depend on the way you introduce your self. I haven't gotten any messages from you, so sorry if I'm assuming, but a lot of people just say "Hi" or something like that. If you attempt to introduce your self, talking about hobbies, why you are learning their language, what you hope to do, etc. Try to find some common ground. Hope this helps!

Maybe your fluent languages are not in demand?

If you offer english, there are other factors. People usually want to practice with someone who has an American accent.

It's always a 2 way thing. Good luck

I think you should decribe your purpose clearly since some people try to find “ relationships “ here and highlight the words #NOT LOOKING FOR A GIRLFRIEND . Lol trust me , it works, also you can join online exchange groups,

I think a language partner needs to have the same interests or know how to interact so if you’re patient  here you can find out your perfect language partners 

For some people n they just have some  language partners because they cannot be multiple talking ( example me) now mainly  I keep talking with just one  language partner to make sure keep practicing and I sometimes talk to other language partners if I have more times.

You can try going to watch YouTube videos and practice talking as them. They’re just some my opinions. Good luck!
