You may be looking for simple companionship, but as you get closer, your connection will evolve into something more meaningful than that. You'll find a great deal of strength and guidance from this friend, who will help you find your path in life. Their values and work ethic will inspire you toward achieving your goals and living the life you were meant to live.
You'll be inspired by their strength, and they will be very instructive for you as you follow along your own path. You may end up feeling indebted to your buddy for all the things they'll teach you about yourself and where you're going; if so, the respect and admiration you give them will be more than enough payment in return.
