Hi,What's the meaning of "Make it out" in this sentence? "Why don't you give him a hug,make it out"

Also, you need to remember to put a space after every comma.

Are you sure the "it" was in there? If it was not I could help, i.e. with "make out". Of course under those circumstances it could also be "make up", but 'make it out' leaves me cold.

Also you forgot a question mark after 'out' in your quote.

Yes,You're right. It was "to make it up". I watched that video again and realized that it is. But, I still don't understand the meaning of that in this sentence. "I think his heart just got broken, why don't you give him a hug, to make it up"?

Please read post #3 again. In addition, note that you have to put a space after every full stop (period) too.

Is there a reason you can't edit it yourself?
In addition, note that you can't put a full stop after an exclamation mark.

Yes, you're right. (Lower-case "y"; space after the comma.) It was "to make it up". I watched that video again and realized that it is. But, I still don't understand the meaning of that in this sentence. "I think his heart just got broken, why don't you give him a hug, to make it up"?
You can read about the phrase to make it up to someone here.
