I have a question!, my female parakeet flew away from its cage and my male parakeet was left alone, now should I go buy a new one or just spend more time with him?

Depends on how much time you have to socialize with your parakeet. If you are gone most of the day, a companion bird might be a good choice.

Based on both my experience and that of others,that is not so. Same gender pairs are best, especially two males. Two females may still lay infertile eggs. Two females with one male will fight each other and become territorial.
After my male lost his female bff, he acceyed a male counterpart quite readily. Unless you are an experienced breeder, two males are best. If you choose an opposite gender pair and they nest, contact an AV or experienced breeder as soon as you see the eggs, please.
Care must be taken to quarantine a new bird only after the remaining bird has time to grieve. After quarantine, the cages should be placed side by side but not touching. The cage doors should be left open to allow them "visitation." They'll probably choose a cage. They may or may not choose to sleep separately for the first few days.
If they are getting along and accept each other, they can live in one cage. If not, you may need to keep separate cages.

I am sorry for your loss.

We have had budgies for as long as I can remember; my first childhood pet was a little male budgie who spoke with a lisp!

They are great little birds.
