It sort of depends on if it's night or day, sunny or cloudy... on a sunny day assuming no wind I will take a range of anywhere between 50-80. For a clear night I will take anywhere from the high 20s to low 100s. For me the sun and wind conditions is the deal breaker on what temperatures are "tolerable". A cloudy day can bring my tolerance up to the low triple digits. On a windy day I prefer it to be in the triple digits. A cold windy day is horrid to me. Windy days I wouldn't want it to go below 80 degrees.

I sweat at anything over 70f, but I chose 75f.

I can take off clothes to stop from sweating to a legal point, but sometimes my achy bones in winter when 10 f is a balmy high temp, I cannot get them warmed up enough to stop the aches no matter what i wear.

Heck i can even Take some humidity at 75, it doesn't feel that bad.

70f would be nice too. As long as no cool breeze I guess giving an effective wind chill of 60.

I can acclimate fairly quickly to the colder temps. But not the achy bones. Even with heat everywhere like a.c. in summer, doesn't get these old bones to stop aching.

Strangely I actually sweat more wearing long clothes in a building that is set at 68 or 70f than I do in summer with 75 but wearing shorts and shirt sleeve shirt. But step outside in that wind on a jan or Feb day, and these bones need warmth.

I can't wait for retirement in the south. Then I won't be so achy, will enjoy wearing shorts and shirt sleeve shirts and sandals. Of course those who are regional down there will probably be bundled up and I'll stand out as a " not from theses here parts" guy.

For me its 50 degrees because that is neither hot nor cold and I can exert myself without sweating much. Also itll be 70 indoors(without heater) when its 50 outdoors. Always much warmer indoors because of all the appliances running that generate heat and the house traps heat like a greenhouse.
50 is cold! 70 is neither hot nor cold...

My ideal temp is 75-80, but I don't mind the 80-89 range

I’d say 40s. I went for an 8 mile walk around town Sunday and the temp was in the low-to-mid 40s. Wore a comfortable sweatshirt and it felt perfect outside. Crisp and pleasant.

Ask me in January I might say 20. Bluebird day after a light snowfall is pretty great too.

I voted 70, but as long as the humidity is low and the sun is shining it's a beautiful day as long as it's above 20 and below 90.

75-85 F is my type. Don't mind the cool weather for a little (mid 40s-low 60s) however when it dips into the 30s, 20s, 10s, etc. it gets ANNOYING and old really fast.

How the heck do you survive the summers here? On that note, how the heck do I survive the winters here?

At first, I was thinking 60. I'm a big fan of fall weather, but opted for 65 degrees instead just to have it slightly warmer.
