This guy keeps telling me how intelligent he thinks I am and how impressed with that he is. He has told me he thinks I am beautiful once and said that he is very attracted to me also, but mostly he just comments on my intelligence. He has had a lot of girlfriends and so I don't know if he thinks intelligence is just a rare quality or he is just telling me that because he doesn't think I am all that pretty so he doesn't want to say too much in that area? Is it better to comment all the time on someone's looks or their intellectual ability?

It's a compliment, and he obviously enjoys your company, so you have to take that into consideration. For me, looks can start a relationship, but it takes intelligence and maturity to keep the relationship going. Also, some guys feel uncomfortable complimenting others on their beauty (go figure), so that's another possible issue.
There's a good chance that he believes that he's paying you a great compliment; intelligent women are much more fun to spend time with than empty-headed women! But, if it's really getting to you, try confronting him about it. Watch his eyes and facial expressions to tell if he's being sincere or not.2
