Ideal conversation exchange partner

Someone who is outgoing, funny, awkward and understanding like I am. Someone who can talk about all sorts of things. So if you’re nice, that’s good too. Oh and if they’re okay with sarcasm. There will probably be a lot of that.

I just really want to improve my knowledge of these languages. I wanted to click more but the limit is three. Which I think is just silly. But I’d love to be able to have conversations and understand more.
