How to find a suitable Travel Buddy

So I just did some reading on the world wide web.

Not all friends make good travel buddies. They may be good for the short distance holiday, meet up for a drink type but not the kind you will be suitable to spend 24/7 hours with on 14 day basis.

The best ones are the ones
- with shared interests,
- able to take on and share the responsibilities of planning and researching,
- willing to put aside differences to communicate when issues arises, i.e what we could do when we get lost, or when we both want to do different things,
- and in my case, able to travel separately and do their own thing (i.e, have breakfast, etc) without sticking to me at the hip.
