Talking to ghair mahrah (strange/other than your immediate relatives) unnecessarily is unlawful. They will not become brother and sister only just calling themselves so:

قال فی الدر: و لایکلم الا عجوزا عطست او سلمت فیشمتھا و یرد السلام علیھا و الا لا، قولہ والا لا ای و الا تکن عجوزاً بل شابۃ لا یشمتھا و لا یرد السلام بلسانہ (الدر: 5/261)

According to the above text, when one is not allowed to reply the greetings of a young woman then how he will be allowed to talk to her.

Allah knows Best!
