"Only men need to be loved, women need to be wanted." True or false?

This was a line from a recent episode of a popular TV show. Even though I think the line is inconsequential to the plot line, I've omitted all other details out of respect for those who hate spoilers.
Taken out of the context of the TV show, do you believe that there is a degree of truth, albeit unfair/sexist/outdated truth, to that sentiment? What does that line mean to you?
I am asking because, for some reason, that line resonated with me as possibly true. I have been going through relationship turmoil, and I am trying to figure out what my needs are and what my partner's needs are, and some of our conflicts seem to follow the stereotypical "guy vs. girl" ways of communicating, dealing, feeling, etc.
Yes, I know it's just a TV show.
