When I say things like that, I don't mean I like you.
Is there a rule that I don't know that means you like someone if you compliment them?
Or am I actually flirting with them when I'm just trying to be a good guy?

If you haven't already noticed, us girls over-analyze things way too much. Thing is, there's not much difference between the kind of compliments you're giving girls and the kind that they would receive from a guy that WAS interested in them. Can you see how they could get the wrong idea?
Of course you don't have to like someone to compliment them. People give each other compliments all the time, because they genuinely mean it and are interested in making the other person feel good.
There's nothing wrong with doing what you're doing. Girls definitely won't resent you for supposedly "leading them on", or anything like that. Just be prepared for the fact that many girl will get the wrong idea, unless they know you otherwise.
