    Demand versus supply. Women want flattery. They don't really bother about lies when receiving flattery. So, naturally....

    I think it's because so many women (often mistakenly) think that men don't like the compliments every bit as much as they do. This is something that I've had to learn over the years too because no one really makes a big deal out of it, but all the men that I've ever been close to really appreciate getting the same kind of positive feedback that women almost invariably expect from men. Women will usually be outspoken about it or ask questions specifically to get compliments from their men, but men will just quietly think whatever they will about themselves and assume that the woman they loves thinks the same whether it's true or not.

    Relationships are a matter of give and take. Women hold all the cards initially, and it is a man's job to work for a woman's affection, primarily because women are typically more desirable and men have a more rampant sex drive. Women have. Men Want. So a man must get a woman to give. That's the nature of the male/female dynamic. So, when a man is working toward gaining a woman's affection, he's going to use every tactic at his disposal. Flattering someone is both easy and surprisingly effective, so it's employed frequently.

    Perhaps because they are trying to impress woman, or get something out of you.
