    I am the same – freezing all the time while he is always warm. He calls me his popsicle and I call him my radiator. It works at night in bed because when we snuggle, he warms me up and I cool him down. Other than that, it’s a silent battle with airconditioning and heating, blankets on the bed, windows open or closed, etc.

    I also told him he’d get more "twister" if it was warmer. Being cold definately makes "the game" less enjoyable!

    I have bad circulation and am always cold, but keeping the thermostat at 68 works ok for me and it’s actually the setting recommended by my electric company for saving $. Just make sure to turn off the heat/AC each time you leave the house. Makes a huge difference.

    LOL, there’s a lot of us that are cold-blooded!  I’m always freezing!!  My Fiance is sweet though he’ll bring an extra sweatshirt for me, or close the windows or whatever.  Most often he offers to "warm me up…heh heh heh."

    I’m always freezing.  I wouldn’t say he’s always hot but definitely more so than me.  It makes car rides hell.  One of us is always going to be uncomfortable! And we both have medical problems that are initiated by temperature.

    He has a panic disorder. He explained that when he has a panic attack he starts to feel hot, sweaty and trapped..  So if I want to blast the heat in the car and he is already hot it simulates the panic attack feeling and makes him start to panic over fear of the panic.. very cycular disorder.

    I have Raynauds so when my hands and feet get cold my capilaries constict reducing blood flow.  So my fingers and toes turn white and loose feeling.  When they warm back up it hurts super bad.  Like someone stabbing them and hitting them with hammers.  It’s not the worst thing in the world but it’s unpleasant.

    He usually wins…

    We are almost always opposite, so it works out well.  We balance each other out.  When I’m cold I leech heat from him to help him cool down and vice versa. ๐Ÿ™‚

    rnc620 – I have Raynaud’s too!!  Not very bad and usually just in my toes, but it SUCKS! 

    And yeah, I am always cold and my husband is always hot.  I usually get to keep it warmer than he wants it to be but I still need a blanket.  Haha.  He is always skeptical and says "you can’t REALLY still be cold!!" until I stick my icy bare feet on his stomach.  Then he believes me ๐Ÿ™‚  Mwahaha.

    He has to sleep a fan blowing on him and the overhead fan on so I’m always freezing my tush off. I have a mink blanket that he calls my "buffalo hyde" that I use to keep me warm. I used to have a heated matress pad on my bed but that got taken off when he moved in because it was too hot for him. I am going to eventually get one of those dual heating matress pads so I can just turn on my side.

    I’m always cold and my husband is always hot. We have our own blankets on our king size bed for that reason. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I read this story that women are actually warmer than men but that they feel colder than them because of the way our circulation works. We have a more evenly distributed layer of fat in our bodies which keeps our internal organs nicely regulated and warm but makes it more difficult to heat our extremities—and we judge our overall body temperature on the basis of the temperature of our hands and feet. So it’s really not all in our heads!
