Your friend comes across to you as someone who wants to use their intuitive, emotional nature to make the world a gentler place. You have an urge for change within you, as well, but yours is more powerful and directed than theirs. You want to become stronger, more effective and more emotionally connected person, and your buddy may turn out to be a key player in your personal transformation, although it may be in a subtle way.
You'll be able to combine their compassionate nature with your own urge for change, and really make things happen. Your best activities together might be those that focus on spiritual or humanitarian concerns, such as volunteering together at a soup kitchen or an animal shelter, or attending lectures on issues of faith or altruism.
