There will be a push-pull between you that creates conflict and makes your friendship interesting, but difficult. Your friend will trigger your need for independence in a big way. They'll unwittingly push buttons inside you that will make you take measures to establish your independence.
It's likely that your buddy isn't as in touch with their own need for space and freedom as you are. If you take care to set your boundaries in a kind, firm, understanding way rather than a rebellious one, you'll be able to teach them that important lesson about being true to yourself. You may find that, with clear, open communication and an effort toward acceptance, you'll both be able to compromise in your behavior toward each other as well as in your perception of each other.
