I am a 19 year old guy and girls always say that they want to be with a smart guy, but I have found that it isn't really true. I think when a girl says this, they mean a guy who is as smart as they are. I'm not trying to be arrogant but I am simply very smart. I read all the time and enjoy learning. On top of that I have a very good memory, so I know quite a bit of stuff.
My last girlfriend used to come home from uni and tell me this cool thing she learnt in psychology class and she would get angry that I already knew it. She would get angry if I told her I already knew and she would get angry if I knew and didn't tell her because it was 'patronizing'. It was something that came up all of the time. It may not seem like a big deal but this ended up being the reason the relationship ended.

Intelligence, being interested in stuff and overall knowledgeable are good and attractive traits. However, it can get really annoying if you act like a smart ass and deliberately make everyone around feel intellectually inferior.0
