There's been so many times when I've had a really good conversation with a guy and then seen him flirt with a girl that is honestly really shallow. I'm not judging the girl, most of the time I know the girl. I always think the guy likes me but I'm always wrong and they end up dating or hooking up with girls that can't keep a conversation for sh*t. Is it because the guys I date are only looking for girls to hook up with or is this a constant thing throughout life?

You don't have to dumb down so to speak, but when I'm with a girl I'm not looking to talk about world affairs and economics.There's a time and a place but as a general rule I try to keep on the lighter side of life, funny things that happened, sports, anything entertaining.
I tend to talk about more academic subjects with my smarter guy friends, mostly because I don't like debating with women about things, it tends to not be as enjoyable. But maybe that's just me.
So yes being able to hold a conversation is important but I don't find it attractive to get into an academic discussion/political debate.1
