    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.

    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.

    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!

    Had a girlfriend that never turned on the a/c. In Houston. During the summer. 104* and she wouldn't even open a window.

    Apparently I am a radiator get cold toes pressed on me all the time.

    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.
