Cold vs. Hot: Which is worse for you?

Some people can't stand being COLD. They can bundle up with all the down coats and fleece hats in the world, and they'll never feel warm enough. They'd rather be hot because they could always cool off with an icy beverage or take a dip in the ocean.

On the other hand, some people can't stand being HOT. Heat and humidity makes them feel sticky, tired, and cranky. They'd rather feel cold because they could always put on extra layers to warm up (but when you're HOT, there's only so many clothes you can shed before it becomes illegal).

So I want to know...

I just start shutting /down/ when I get so cold. My mind starts to numb, consciousness seems increasingly optional, and I become pretty unresponsive to the world... then again, I can run and move to relieve the bitterness, if I get unbearable and it's possible. With heat, at least there's solace with ice water- or ANY water. I do start to act like I'm utterly high off my a-*cough* out of it. But I'd rather suffer through sun than cold, though not by much. Probably because I'm a naturally cold girlie.

with heat comes sweat, and that just sucks.

When I retire, I'm moving to Seattle, not Florida. Hot weather is my kryptonite. It just makes me want to sit around and whine.

at least when it's hot i can take off layers, drink some cold water and dry off, when it's cold nothing can make me warmer fast enough!

i hate being cold! and putting on every item of clothing i own doesn't always help, there is simply no escaping it when you are freezing all the way down to your bones..

I'd rather be hot than cold. I don't mind the cold... just not for a long time. It's probably because I'm used to the warm weather here and never really having any of those winter seasons...

I said cold because I look way cuter in summer clothes.

I loooove heat! Even humidity . . . it just freels so lovely on my skin. Im from the caribbean, so that makes sense. The only thing that bothers me about being too hot is if the sun feels like it's burning, but you can wear a hat or stand in the shade. Or go inside and turn on a fan. But being cold . . . . it can actually hurt! I never felt any kind of pain from being too hot. The worst New Years of my life I spent in Holland and Ive never been so miserable. I even slept in a ski jacket and my entire body still hurt.

i'd much rather be cold because you can just put layers on top and snuggle in them.

i'm kinda wierd. I like being both. I love cold and hot weather. But I think that's just cause i love the different fashion. in the winter, i love jackets, coats, scarves, hats, etc. And in the summer, I adore shorts, tanks, and flip flops.... So being cold or hot, doesn't really bother me.

I'm on the hot train. I hate cold, hate A/C, hate ice in my drinks. The only thing I like about cold weather is getting to buy and wear nice coats. otherwise, give me a flowy dress on a warm day!

I have spent my entire life in Florida, so i can pretty much handle any heat or humidity! Being cold is not fun! I saw snow for the FIRST TIME this winter! It was nice, but I hate getting all bundled up. I'm too much of a barefoot/flipflop kind of girl.

I hate being cold. I am such a cranky b*tch when I am cold. (well, moreso than normal)

I cannot stand being hot. If I am cold, I throw on a jacket. But if I am hot - I can only take off so many clothes. Plus the smell of sweating - yuck!

ug I can't STAND being HOT. unlses i am at the beach. where i can jump in the water. A comfy 72 degrees with 0 humidity and a slight breeze would be my perfect temp. and I esp can't sleep if i am hot, which makes me more miserable. i sleep better by making the room super cold and throwing the blankets on the bed

I hate being where it's too hot. There's only so naked as you can be. You can always put on More clothes! I hate either extreme though. I'm not a snow person, nor am I desert person! Central california, mild weather, thats what I like!!

Funny, pretty much neck and neck. I would rather be hot. I am one of the ones who just can't seem to get warm when it's cold- and if I am in air conditioning. I keep two sweaters at work!- year round!!!

I'd rather be hot. I sit in a very cold air-conditioned office every day freezing! It can be 90 degrees outside and I'm still wearing a sweater at my desk. It's terrible.
