You two won't connect from the beginning. There will be a strange lack of feeling between you, as if you're underwhelmed when you're together. There are probably other connections between you that describe the areas of interest that will bring you together, so focus on those.
Still, even if you're involved with projects together, you may find that you're out of sync; you just can't seem to coordinate your efforts. You may disagree on how to do things and could even provoke arguments with each other. Compromise will be crucial to keeping the friendship going, if that's what you both want.
