In the name of the Merciful Allah,
Hi, I heard once this sentence: "He was very complementary", on T.V. Because of the context, I'm sure whoever said it meant describing somebody with the characteristic of saying great loveable things, which they're not necessarily exist, on others. The problem is that I don't find any definition involves, or near to, this meaning in any dictionary. Please, if you find one tell me. Also, am I wrong for understanding this meaning? Can you provide me with synonyms of " complementary". Many thanks ahead.
Complimentary says something nice.
