They are all fine.

Hi, I was wondering about the difference between "stranger" as a noun (used in the plural form) and "stranger" as the comparative form of the adjective "strange". I made up a few sentences and I would like to know whether the use of these words is correct.
Stranger as a noun
We are strangers (We don't know each other)
Do they feel like strangers ?
They treat us like strangers.
We are no strangers to rejection (We have experience of rejection)
Stranger as the comparative form of the adjective strange
We are stranger (We are more strange)
We are getting stranger and stranger (We are becoming more and more strange)
The more I talk to them, the stranger they seem to be.
Do they feel any stranger (Do they feel more strange?)
We are no stranger than we were a few days ago. ( We are the same as we were a few days ago)
"Stranger as a noun doesn't have to be in the plural.
A tall dark stranger, a perfect stranger etc."
What if I want to refer to more than one stranger? Souldn't I say "three tall dark strangers/ perfect strangers" for example?
"Doesn't have to be in the plural" doesn't mean "mustn't be in the plural", right? "Stranger" as a noun could be either singular (stranger) or plural
(strangers) depending on the situation, whereas as the comparative form of strange the form "stranger" is mandatory.

Yes, that would be fine.
