So. Which do you prefer, the heat or the cold? Or, if you had to choose between them which one would you pick and why?

Personally, I love the cold but can tolerate the heat. I just know that heat brings insects ;A;

I prefer the cold. Mostly because I enjoy the clothing one wears with cooler weather. I find it more aesthetically pleasing... and I effing hate being too hot. I'm like, happiest when I'm bundled up.

I much prefer the cold. It's a lot more comfortable, you can wear warm comfy clothes, and it feels like Christmas! <3 Whereas intense heat is just uncomfortable D:

Ohh I hate the cold weather it's the worst I'm more of a guy that loves the hot weather because the beach will be calling me and I don't have to wear layers of clothes ;)

I simply tolerate both of them. On one hand, I dislike being sweaty and the sun becomes extremely unbearable, but the scenery makes it worth it while being able to go to the pool and go out and be more active than usual is a big bonus. On the other hand, I don't like having to wear socks indoors or wearing hoodies to bed because my bed is right next to a huge window, so my room is subject to the elements. In the winter, if I'm not in my room for most of the day, it gets freezing. However, I like the 'feel' of the cold in a way. It's chilling and can almost be cozy at times, and running outside when it's below freezing is actually fun, especially when you're only wearing a t-shirt and shorts. It makes you run even faster.

So when it comes down to it, I tolerate both. Besides, I can eat cake year-round.

I prefer the cold. You can easily warm yourself up with a blanket or a sweater, but in the heat it's hard to cool down.

The cold. You can find ways to warm yourself off, whereas cooling down is a lot harder to do.

The last two posts basically summed up what I was going to say about preferring the cold. Although, I have always liked the cold and snow anyway, having spent some winters in -30C/-22F without minding too much. On the flip side though, even when it gets to about 30C/85F around here, I find myself way too hot.

Yep yep yep. I may live in Texas but that's not going to stop me from freezing then warming myself up with a blanket that's bigger than the universe and cozier than this moth (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megalopyge_opercularis). I am more than willing to pay extra in electric during Texas summers so I can freeze in my apartment. I'm about to rent one side of a duplex I specifically chose because the floors are mostly tile. I love the cold o-o

I'm uncomfortable in either.. but for some reason I find myself to be more intolerable of a temperature that's colder than having a temperature that's a little too warm. I guess I get cold easily.

I hate the heat. All that sun, all that sweating. Ugh. I generate enough heat on my own to make most "cold" days feel pleasant for me. Give me a cold day any day. Just not too cold.

As much as I hate winter, I'm going with cold. The heat brings misery to me. Mosquito, sinus issues, the constant feeling I'm melting. With the cold, you can at least get a blanket or even a jacket and warm yourself up, if you have to. Doing the reverse is harder without electric aid.

I think I prefer the heat to the cold. I love being cold (not too cold mind you) but I love being warm more. As long as the heat isn't making me sweat, I could bask in it all day. Toasty! :D

I prefer the cold so much over the heat. Heat is terrible, it's inescapable. Guys tend to run hotter than girls so I find heat unbearable while cold is always refreshing. My mother is always telling me that I need to put more clothes on because "if I'm cold, everybody's cold" but she can go to Hell.

I like both the heat and the cold, but I can stand the heat much more than the cold. Most people would be like "damn, it's hot in here" and I would be sitting with a t shirt and a big coat on, and I would say "seriously, you guys are hot?" I think I don't feel the heat as much as others do.

The cold. Easier to get warm, and then I can snuggle up in aaaaaaall the coats and blankets. Having layers is fun! Also, I could walk forever in the cold. The air's so nice and crisp when it's cold outside.

Most of the places I've lived have been hot and humid in the summer, so when I'm hot I get icky and sweaty and gross. I wouldn't mind the heat so much if it weren't for the humidity. :(

The cold is waayyy better to me. >: Not only is it easier to warm up than cool down, but it also requires less money. n__n; Cold? Put on a sweater! Hot? Spend a ton of money on the AC haha.

But yeah, I'll take the cold any day. I adore thick blankets, too, so it gives me an excuse to use 'em!

Totally the cold...but not freezing cold, really. :( I like to be cuddled up inside a blanket. The heat is unbearable to me and I just cannot stand it.

I'd actually prefer moderate-warm above all else, but I'd definitely prefer the hot end of the spectrum. Over 20 years of putting up with harsh New York winters is the primary reason for this. I now hate winter with a passion.

I'm surprised that the majority of you prefer the cold...
I love the heat. Well, of course, I can't bear when it's to hot and so on, but a hot weather is better than a cold one, there are more things to do. Cold weather is depressing, you don't have the courage to go out, and don't wanna do anything...

I'd go for being too hot. I've always hated the cold and I've got pretty sucky circulation so once I'm cold I stay cold until I'm in a heated room and I can get everywhere else warm first. The worse thing that happened to me when I was hot was I got a migraine, worse thing that happened to me when I was cold was I almost lost a finger.

Anyways, I've actually 'warmed up' to heat a lot more (OHOHOHO PUN SO FUNNEH) after dealing with a heat wave of temperatures in the hundreds. Still prefer the cold greatly, though. But I would probably be more apt to enjoy hot days if there weren't so many goddamn bugs whirring around in the air :/ Seriously, that's my biggest concern in summer... insects.

I'm hot-blooded, so I tend to get hot really easily and it's never fun ><; Also, I feel as if you don't get as much a nice feeling when you warm up after being cold than when you cool down after being hot. So, I definitely prefer the cold over the heat~

I like heat, but not if it's TOO hot; I think 70-75 degrees F is fantastic weather! Once we start getting into the 80's, 90's, and 100's, I'm not as big of a fan -_-

I prefer the cold though, especially late autumn and early winter <3 That's my favorite! I love layering my clothes, ordering warm drinks, the color of the leaves, the holidays, etc. However, if it starts getting into the single digits or negatives, count me out v_v

I like both so long as it's mild and not too overbearing on either side.

Heat actually makes me nauseous and sick, so I prefer the cold. Plus, I find it's easier to combat the cold (like, with extra layers) than the heat. My bedroom gets ridiculously hot during the summer and horribly cold during the winter and I must say I'd take the coldness over the heat any day.

The cold really takes a toll on me so that means I prefer the heat better.

I mean, I live in Australia which is often very warm and sunny which means it's the kind of climate I'm used to. Also, I love cooling down with a little splash of water.

Yeah, I'm a hot girl you can say.

I am longing for my tan, can't wait for the weather to warm up so I can be brown and wear white again.

Why would you get a tan? Your greatest advantage is being white and you would cover it up?

Says it all really.

As for me I might have a preference to colder weather because I can wear my full attire without boiling up. Hotter weather is definitely preferred when I want to go cycling or play sport or whatever.

The cold is waayyy better to me. >: Not only is it easier to warm up than cool down, but it also requires less money. n__n; Cold? Put on a sweater! Hot? Spend a ton of money on the AC haha.

Or you could, you know, strip down. Mmm yeah . . .

I love the cold and the snow too!!

I can't tolerate heat too much (unless its the shower!!), it makes me sweat, smell, makes it a breeding ground for insects, especially mosquitoes (I'm terribly afraid of mosquitoes - because of the disease they could carry), hear that they are more active at summer. When the temperature gets above 88 F not even sitting in front of the fan at full capacity helps. I remember suffering when Seattle got to 103 F (July 29, 2009). Only + side of summer heat - Ice Cream! Baskin Robbins!! Slurpees or Icees!

With the cold weather, I'm much more comfertable. More blankets, or let my cats warm me up. Hot Chocolate, Lemon Tea!, Egg Nog or Apple Cider (non alcoholic kind). I can wear my beanie (which has my favorite metal band logo on it), some of my long sleeve shirts or jerseys, and gloves. Its fun to play in the snow! Have snow ball fights, walk around the neighborhoods and see all white beauty of nature (covered trees, lawns, and rooftops). My only negative comment on cold - getting out of the shower, it will be cold for a few minutes - and also, I won't be able to drive.

I prefer hot weather, honestly. It allows you to do so much more with your day. It is, however, a great deal more uncomfortable. I hate the feeling of sweat pouring down my back as it does everyday that I walk home. To the point where I have to take my shirt off and even end up sweating through my backpack, too, actually. You can only remove so many articles of clothing before you aren't allowed to walk around in the public anymore :b and even then, you could strip naked and jump in a tub of ice water with a fan blowing at your back, but if you're still hot, there isn't much else you can do(and since you have to be in the water...) In the cold you can add extra layers, put on more socks, more blankets etc. Start a fire, turn on the heater or something. You don't have to be so tied to home to retain your comfort level in the cold. Like I said, though, the hot weather is much more suitable for... well... life. The heat, the sun, it all brings energy to us(well me, at least ^_^); it's just so invigorating! The cold(again, to me) has a sapping effect from me and makes me not want to do anything. Breathing is harder in the cold and since I already have breath issues I'm out of by just walking up a hill, which is not good :s So it is easy to say that hot weather is my preferred weather, even if cold weather is more manageable.

I'm surprised that so many people here are like me in that they prefer the cold! I get such weird looks from my friends when I say I'd rather go on holiday in Switzerland or Sweden rather than Egypt or Greece, but it's true! It's probably because I'm more used to the cold, but even British summers make me all irritable - and if anyone has experienced a British summer as opposed to a more continental European/American one, you'll know how pathetic that is.

This is exactly how I think.
Though people here in AMERICA tend to think that the reason I like the cold is because I'm from Canada.
