A water molecule may not be wet. A singular object in the presence of no other cannot be interfered with. It could not be wet as it would not be in the presence of wetness and yet, it is water. Therefore if water is water can it not be wet if it is the only water molecule around but it can make things wet.

No. Water isn’t wet within itself. When it amalgamated with other substances that’s when it becomes wet.

Something becomes wet when there are water molecules on it. A single water molecule is not wet, but multiple together would make each other wet.

Correct - wetness is the state in which an object is covered with or saturated with water.
So a sponge saturated with water molecules is wet, or a glass full of water molecules is wet, but the water itself is not strictly wet.

So what if the water touched the other water, would that make it wet?

Water touches water it will be dry.

Water cannot touch water.
What why not?

Water itself is dry. So if it touches water it will be dry.

Sorry, reread your question again.

But if it is the water that makes the thing wet then why when touching other water doesn’t it make the water wet?????

Any additional water would become continuous with the existing water, so it cannot be 'covered' with water, which was situation one.
Additional water cannot 'saturate' other water (as this relies upon absorption/dissolution of a substance) and water will not absorb/dissolve itself so cannot be saturated with water, which was situation two.

Since neither situation occurs, addition of more water does not make water wet.

Water is a dry substance alone. When in contact with other molecules it’ll then make it wet, because of the contact it has upon the other substance.

Water in fact has pretty high cohesive forces because of hydrogen bonding, and so is not as good at wetting surfaces as some liquids such as acetone or alcohols. However, water does wet certain surfaces like glass for instance.
