I've just learned that I might objectify men... and generalize them really badly. I thought they all wanted sex and to leave someone and didn't care for loving someone or having intimacy i guess.
I know thats horrible, and i dont want to always believe this, its just happened to me a lot.
I usually just hang out with guys who have a good standing with there work who may be useful in networking or what ever, never guys to different from me (i assume theyre pompus a holes).
So I'm not sure what the correct view or sort of healthy view is. Because i think men a monsterswho want sex and no relationships, i sort of seem cold.
Have you gone through this? how do you get out of it?

This is a great example of how gender stereotypes can negatively effect men as well as women. Men are expected to be this emotionless, sex-animal-matching with no self control- Does that sound positive to you?
I think girls learn it the same way guys do, media. Movies, TV, magazines- they all paint us how we should behave based on our genders, guys do this and girls do that. Guys just want sex with no emotional attachment, women just want a cuddle buddy who buys them things and don't enjoy sex or else she is a slut.
I wish more people saw how gender roles hurt both sexes.0

Think you mean stereotype rather than objectify.
I think you haven't yet dealt with past hurt and maybe haven't learned to be happy with you. Love yourself first then make others earn the love you have to offer - that will screen out the a holes that prey on women with low self esteem1
