Synonyms can be more useful than you know. For starters, they can make you sound profound and well-read in practically every situation. I’ll admit that I’ve used them to win more arguments than I can count, as they can easily confuse your opponent.
On the other hand, they can also come in handy when it comes to expressing yourself. Let’s say you’re writing a heartfelt message to someone you love. Obviously, you want them to know how beautiful you think they are. However, you’ve already used the word “beauty” several times, and you don’t want to overdo it.
