Not really, it's been a long time coming. I went into a conversation intending to end things only to have her do so first.
So I guess it's mutual. I do think it's the kind of thing that will eventually cool down and we'll end up friends though. I wouldn't mind that.

Lots of focus on grammar? That is unfortunately probably ineffective. You seem to have the right idea when speaking about the appreciation of the subject.
This video might interest you. Nothing to do with German (except for an example) but it's a good explanation of one of the main theories of language acquisition. As a foreign language teacher myself, I believe it is effective. Results do seem to support it consistently too. Interestingly, however, it takes as a starting point theories which are most likely not true (in my opinion at least).
