    I am very warm natured and I have been to peoples homes who are very cold natured, and in the winter I can't stand to be in their homes because it's so hot. Do any of you GT'rs have a spouse that's the opposite of you, if so how do you deal with it? There is no way in hell I could live with a cold natured woman:alex:

    Good Luck finding a hot natured woman, Okie. About 99% of them are "freezing" all the time.

    I'm a warm natured guy (hot all the time except January and February) and my wife of 36 years was a cold natured woman when we got married. Lots of themostat battles in the early years, but after about age 50, she started warming up a little. Thank you Mother Nature!!

    We still don't match up perfectly, but at least nowadays she don't have to have blankets on the bed in JULY.

    I'll take a 100 degree day over a 40 degree day every time. I hate cold weather.

    Mine is all over the map so I set it low and then she can handle her own temp with sweat pants etc.

    I can't stand having the house above 65* F and generally keep it lower.

  8. I bring a jacket in the car, so I can give it to my wife to tuck in her legs.

    She has a little electric blanket so she can stay warm on the couch.


    I toss on a pair of socks in the winter around the house and wear a hat outside.

    My body temp is usually around 97.3, hers is about 98.9. I have always wondered if body temp correlates with what ambient temperature a person feels comfortable at.

  9. Anything below 75 is cold to my other half. I'm pretty easy going either way. i'm fairly happy anywhere between 40 & 80.

    I'm not married.

    I'm one of those guys who gets into a hotel room and immediately drops the thermostat to 64 degrees. I can't stand people who run heaters before there's ice on the puddles...

    I'm freezing all the time...but apparently I throw off a ton of heat. Bad for Mr. GKL when I want to snuggle because I'm cold and he's like GOD YOU ARE LIKE A SPACE HEATER...

    Oh my, my wife and I are POLAR opposites on the temp scale. I don't wear long pants, Or actual shoes till its below 40 outside (which in Texas amounts to maybe 2 weeks a yr). Her on the other hand has been known to wear a hoodie when it 100 freaking degrees outside. We just agree to disagree, I set the thermostat at the high end of my acceptable range and she can adjust further with clothing.

    girl needs the heat turned up, i can't stand it. She'll be curled up under blankets with the heat on and I'll be ontop of the covers sweating.

    I found a woman that likes it cool. We set our thermostat at 72* during the summer and only turn our heat on a couple times a year. If she is a little cold she will snuggle up to me. I am a space heater!

    We're not complete opposites, but I'm more extreme than she is. I'd be perfectly happy with an indoor temperature of 60 degrees year round; I just can't afford that in the summer. I make up for it in the winter, though. We work opposite hours, so I turn the heat down to 55 while I'm sleeping.

    I'm hot & she's cold. If I read in bed for 30 minutes or so, I can leave a toasty spot for her.

    The worst thing about my body temp is the hot flashes. They are exactly like what females describe, and I have had them since my early 20s. I'm in my mid 40s.
