"Offering a compliment just because another person paid you a compliment can come off as sounding forced and not genuine."
What does it mean of 'come off as sounding forced ?"
Thanks / ju
to come off means to give the impression that something is the case.
come off as sounding forced -- it may sound as if you pay a compliment back because you want to comply with accepted standards of social interactions and not because it comes from your heart.
