You want to hear something funny? I'm in the same situation. I contacted or was contacted by ten Russians, but not a single one has followed through. Sure, the time difference, work, and software problems might cause problems, but we never got that far. Only two even added me on Skype. I never talked to those two and the others disappeared. I finally decided to keep paying for lessons and forget about practice with a normal person.

Yes, I have with two native English speakers and two non-natives with an excellent level of the English language. Awesome people I have to say. And it wasn't just once. I talked with everyone once a week, so, in total I had speaking practice four times a week for a few months.

Yep lots of times haha most people are pretty nice I need to talk to people from India or Pakistan though so the issue often is the time zones I have some friends that use this site to learn chinese and they have the same problem

Yes, I have some regular partners with whom I practice my English over Skype. My native language is Russian too, so don't think you haven't succeeded because your mother tongue is Russian. Many people from other countries are learning it and would love to exchange. Just try to be more assertive and PM those whose profile info has piqued your interest. Под лежачий камень вода не течёт, как говорится ;)

Yes, I have :) A lot of people wrote to me and were interested in having a talk. I'm keen on foreign languages and Italki is one of the greatest opportunities to meet incredible guys :)
