List Rules Vote up the compliments that make you wonder why people even try to be nice.

Nothing strokes the ego quite as perfectly as a well-timed compliment. Some smooth operators have completely mastered the art of using gilded words like gifts. These masters of language can sweet talk their way out of any bind. They can steal anyone's heart. They completely transcend any verbal barriers that might prevent them from having things that they want.

This understanding of flowery one-liners isn't easily taught, however. Some people try for years to give good compliments, but they always fall short. One wonders, "How hard can it really be to make someone feel good about himself or herself?" But in truth, many a lovelorn teenager has tried to woo a paramour with accolades and failed. Novices might say, "Your voice makes me want to kidnap you" or "Wow, you're great at spreading butter." Novices might not even understand why their well-meaning compliments are driving people away.

This list won't help you hone your niceties, but perhaps it will steer you away from bumbling as egregiously as the poor fools that are mentioned on Reddit.
