    Please can you give us a few example sentences where you would use this word? More context will make it easier for us to help you. Feb 28 '12 at 10:28

Do you mean someone with whom you have good camaraderie? Someone whom you find it especially easy to relate to; Or are you describing someone who is generally an all-round popular guy, who makes friends easy, and is easy to be friends with?

If it is someone whom you personally can relate to, you could try "Kindred spirit"

If it's someone who can easily relate to everyone, you could try "Sociable?" "Outgoing?"

  • Kindred spirit is good. What about fellow traveler? Or maybe soul sister / soul brother? Jan 24 '14 at 9:26
