2.Many people say they want gladiator but aren't willing to put forth the effort and persistence to get there. Make sure you both are willing to stay for the ride even when it gets rough.
3.Have fun. If you don't have fun/hate your partner you will have a harder time getting better.
I knew my partner from meeting him IRL, guess I got lucky.

Work on your gear, grind BGs like mad asap while getting arena games with people from trade or friends just so you always get some per week, don't spend any on anything lower than the highest possible tier.
Read strategy on how fights go down FOR YOUR CLASS, don't worry about how Holy Paladin + DK vs. Warlock + Mage goes down if you don't play one of those classes.
Readup on arena mods and how to use focus macros, etc. Basically you want to have a bunch of your ducks up in a line before you start talking to people who have been doing this stuff for a while. If you can't get this stuff to work for you for whatever reason, ask a gladiator who is pretty affluent with focus targetting + macros (and mods if you want) to help you out over tells or vent.
Then, make the jump and...
Ask a gladiator or two on your server to help you out, explain that you're willing to take advice and criticism.
When they do help you out, be pleasant and thank them for taking time to help you get better at PvP.
They won't be expecting you to be amazing, so feel free to ask what mistakes you made so you can learn from them, and make sure you do. When you learn from the mistakes that they tell you that you made, be sure to try to improve them while keeping all the other stuff in tact.
You'll be a gladiator (or greater) in no time.
The above is basically what I did, lol.

best way imo is to join your server's top pve guild and get with the "in" crowd.

And about getting better. I just have all my rl friends read this site a lot. I started this game fairly late (never did any vanilla stuff besides ptr premades.. lol) and this sight helped me get better a lot faster than I would have on my own.
