    I am friends with him.

    "I am friends with him."

    "He is friends with me."

    "They are friends with them."

    Please check.

    Does "I am friends with him" mean "we are friends"?

    Re: I am friends with him.

    You're right. "I'm friends with him" means that I'm his friend and he's mine.

    I'm not a native speaker though. Perosnally I do not hear this phrase frequently.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    Re: I am friends with him.

    It is OK, though. In many contexts, we are friends would be more likely.
