There is another thread going on right now about how one should behave at an Assembly, and Julie W, in the post linked below, says that it was not outrageous to expect a gentleman who came to an Assembly to dance there.
How does Darcy know he has nothing useful to say? He does not even engage in conversation.
Once Darcy and Lizzy start talking, they certainly find plenty to talk about. Perhaps Darcy should not have looked at a whole roomful of people and assumed that they were uninteresting (as we know he did) or that he would not have anything in common with them to talk about (as you suggest he considered to be the problem).
Yes, I agree that Darcy was probably genuinely agreeable around his friends (as most people are -- that's almost a defining characteristic of friends). What is objectionable is the way he treats people he looks down on.
