    Make friends with each other

    "We make good friends with each other".

    "I make good friends with him/them".

    "He makes good friends with me.

    "They have made good friends with each other for twenty years".

    "I haven't come here to make friends with you".

    "When we were child we made good friends with each other".

    "They make good friends with me".

    "They have been making good friends since 1987".

    Does it have same meaning as "become friend or make friend"?

    What does "it" refer to in your question? You are asking if "it" means the same as "become friend" or "make friend". Without knowing what you mean by "it", we can't answer the question.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Make friends with each other

    Leaving aside the 'it' problem, only the fifth of your sentences is natural. We don't 'make good friends' with people.

    Re: Make friends with each other

    Only the fifth one is correct and rest of the sentences are incorrect. Could you please tell me that what is the correct way to use phrase "make friends"?

    Re: Make friends with each other

    You make friends with someone, after that you could become good friends.

    Re: Make friends with each other

    Are my sentences wrong just because of "good"? Do I need to remove "good" from my sentences?
