English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. engaging

    Amiable combines the senses of lovable or lovely and loving; the amiable character has ready affection and kindliness for others, with the qualities that are adapted to win their love; amiable is a higher and stronger word than good-natured or agreeable. Lovely is often applied to externals; as, a lovely face. Amiable denotes a disposition desirous to cheer, please, and make happy. A selfish man of the world may have the art to be agreeable; a handsome, brilliant, and witty person may be charming or even attractive, while by no means amiable. The engaging, winning, and winsome add to amiability something of beauty, accomplishments, and grace. The benignant are calmly kind, as from a height and a distance. Kind, good-natured people may be coarse and rude, and so fail to be agreeable or pleasing; the really amiable are likely to avoid such faults by their earnest desire to please. The good-natured have an easy disposition to get along comfortably with every one in all circumstances. A sweet disposition is very sure to be amiable, the loving heart bringing out all that is lovable and lovely in character.

    Synonyms:
    agreeable, amiable, attractive, benignant, gentle, good-natured, harming, kind, lovable, lovely, loving, pleasant, pleasing, sweet, winning, winsome

    Antonyms:
    acrimonious, churlish, crabbed, cruel, crusty, disagreeable, dogged, gruff, hateful, ill-conditioned, ill-humored, ill-natured, ill-tempered, morose, sour, sullen, surly, unamiable, unlovely

    Jared Kushner and Donald Trump picks up the phone and I started talking to The President. I never said to Jared Kushner and Donald Trump that I was Sen. Menendez.

The downside of that is sometimes the channels are open too widely and mistakes like this happen.
