As a new Muslim, I'm encouraged to seek good company:
One of the best ways that the Muslim can preserve and safeguard their religion is that they be selective of who they take as friends and company. ... This is especially important to those Muslims who have recently embraced Islam... They may have many habits... which are regarded as sins in Islam, and they need good company to help them in their struggle to put them aside. (NewMuslims.com)
Alhamdulillah, I am fortunate enough to have met such a person. However, I have a concern: while she is devout and educated, and thus is good company for me to keep, I'm worried that I might not be the best company for her to keep.
Question: When seeking good company, need I be concerned that I'm bad company for others?

It is not enough, however, that you befriend just any Muslim either. Rather, you should seek pious knowledgeable Muslims who themselves are trying their utmost to adhere to the tenets of the religion. You may see many Muslims falling short in fulfilling the obligations and refraining from the prohibitions of the religion.
And it wouldn't be too inaccurate to say I'm the "falling short" kind of Muslim. Maybe I'm the one who should be avoided.
