Question Get a friend?

I have one year old female budgie who is (finally) finger trained and is free to be let out of her cage. I spend lots of time with her, trying to bond, but I was wondering. Should I get another budgie to be her friend? I was thinking it would be nice to train another budgie, as my current budgie and I had a bit of a false start... Her cage couldn't hold her and she would escape, so her first impression of me was a scary thing chasing her around the room trying to catch her! This I think set her training back a bit as her first few days in our house was to her quite terrifying. So with another budgie I could learn from the experience and start properly. The only thing I am worried about is if my budgie gets jealous or isn't friendly, and then I have two fighting budgies. Also I read that male budgies were friendlier, but I can't get a male in case they breed! I am asking for some advise. Thank you
P.S. I would carry on spending time with my current budgie
