to say I want to be friend with you is syntactically incorrect

hehe! "native rule"! If you're telling me, I'll trust you uzeyir-a, as far as your English friends know their mother-tongue well (which isn't always true).

I personaly can't pretend I do, what may lead me to error sometimes would be a too cartesian mind, expecting use of the singular when natives use the plural. eg : I want what>> I want to be what>> I want to be friends with you...

Hi guys, the expression is:
"to be friends with somebody"

I want to be friends with you

But the other suggestions Francky gave are correct as well.

WOW, how long dialog here.
Dear uzeyir, i think Francky's circumstantion is correct.
"I want to be your friend." it's correctly grammatical .
And if you observe, in source text "Arkadaş" word it's singular.

as Francky says, "I want to be your friend" is Ok for me.

Dear mygunes!
Yeah,'friend' may sound more logical but it's 'friends'.You can't translate everything the same to another language.

If you don't want everything to be translated as how they are in the source language,"I want to be your friend" means "Senin arkadaşınolmak istiyorum."
Some friends tell me not to translate by changing it but the examples you gave mean different things as well.

is there a big difference between

"seninle arkadaş olmak istiyorum."
and
"Senin arkadaşın olmak istiyorum." ?

SENİN ARKADAŞIN olmak istiyorum : I want to be YOUR FRIEND

SENİNLE arkadaş olmak istiyorum : I want to be friends WITH YOU

They've got almost the same meaning but the owner of Turkish text wrote "seninle arkadaş olmak istiyorum"

Well, I didn't know one could say that, but as I told uzeyir, if his friend's english is trustable,(and he seems to be) no reason to argue any longer about, personaly I'm keeping on learning English everyday, I'm not a native speaker and therefore I admit my English is not perfect (I can't know everything) and here that one can say "I want to be friends with you", is ok for me!

What's the vocabulary mistake,calypso?
I don't understand people who don't even give any reason :S Omg!
I appreciate Frankcy because he's given some reasons but some people here do nothing except judging.

as a student of both English and Turkish I can only say that üzeyir is right .

seninle: with you
arkadaş: friend
olmak: to be
istiyorum: I want

I want to be friends with you.
And yes, arkadas is in the singular, but the 'I want to be friends with you' doesn't imply more than one friend either does it?
