Other questions about "Time"

Q: ・It is about time I got a girl friend
・It is about time to get a girl friend

What is the difference between these expressions?
A: The first sentence is you talking to yourself, or about yourself.

The second sentence is a more broad, generic statement. It could be you talking to yourself, or you talking to someone else, or someone else talking to you. It is not incorrect, but I think in this context, it is a little bit more unnatural to not specify an actor in the sentence.

It's about time you got a girlfriend.
It's about time he got a girlfriend.

Also, usually "girlfriend" is written as a single compound word.

maybe it's because I'm afraid of making mistakes So I'm making sentences in my mind caring about grammer.
I know if I want to improve English I should use it as much as I can.

is it better to speak faster without thinking about grammer although I would make mistakes like go shop, to buying) so that I can get more speaking rate and time to practice speaking English.

Could you give me some advice?
A: It depends on your goals. If you want to communicate, yes, just talk. Native speakers will understand you even if you make a lot of grammatical errors. If you aspire to good grammar - read and write.
