I need some gecko advice

My male leopard gecko Albi passed away on Christmas =( I still have Ickis and I was wondering if I should consider getting another gecko so that Ickis wont be lonely (Ickis is a girl) Her and Albi have been together for just shy of 3 years so I know she must miss him. She keeps looking around the tank like she's trying to find him. The local petco has a lot of young geckos but they also get older ones for adoption and I know how to check the gender of a older gecko. If I go adopt a new gecko eventually should I get another female or would a male be okay? Any advice would be a big help. I don't want Ickis to be lonely but I also don't want her to be upset by a new gecko showing up if that makes sence.

Leopard geckos aren't social animals, they don't get lonely like a mammal might. I would personally keep her alone, it's easier to keep track of a single animal as far as feeding and general health go.
