You'll have an inspiring influence on each other. Your friend will help you expand your mind by bringing brand-new ideas to the table and exploring them with you. You'll have lively, engaging conversations during which you'll discuss many things, but your values, beliefs and ideas will be a big focus.
And you won't feel the need to merge your opinions in order to get along; you'll feel perfectly comfortable in being the individual that you are, because you'll recognize that each of you brings something unique and important to the friendship. You, for example, have a lot of life experience, while your buddy has the vision to put that experience to some kind of good use. Just make sure that you make the most of this good energy!
