Introducing a New Finch to a Lone Bird?

I have a 6 year old male zebra finch and I'm looking to get another male. My finch has always been alone. So, my question(s) is/are, would they fight? Will my old one be territorial? How would I introduce them? I don't really want my old one to be stressed so if this doesn't sound like a good idea I won't do it. I just thought a buddy sounded nice, but I'm hearing it might not be so good for my finch. I've never owned any other bird but this one so I'm open to suggestions and pointers.

I would not get a buddy for your bird. He is set in his ways and wont like it.

If you have your heart set on a second bird, I have a friend who does co-existing...where the cages are nearby, but not in pecking distance. This site talks about it better than I can:

It is best not to have them in close proximity in the beginning any way to protect against disease or illness (just in case).
