I need all 4 saesons, but the best weather is 50-60 degrees, 40's at night, partly cloudy, and somewhat windy or calm. I prefer jackets, sweatshirts, tennis shoes and jeans, cause they're comfortable, and I enjoy wearing athletic gloves and a hat. I don't like really warm weather, although I couldn't live completely without it. Also, I couldn't live without cold weather. I love days that are below 0, and I get super excited when it gets below -10 and -20. Wind chill is -57? I go outside. And snow is awesome. Bring it on.

I chose 65.....here's why:

65 is cool enough that, without a hot blazing sun, it's a bit chilly, especially with any wind. With that hot blazing sun, it can be warm to downright hot, depending on the angle of that sunshine. I think it's "perfect" because I -- for some reason -- need to be warm and cool, on and off, over and over, to be comfortable. I like it when I'm cool enough to want to warm up, but then immediately I like to cool off when I get too warm. If the temp is too static I get uncomfortable (odd, I know)! It's like sleeping with a blanket/comforter: people like me WANT to sleep with a comforter, but to be able to do so (and especially because I generally run very warm and sweat easily) the room has to be quite chilly beforehand. So I'll get under the covers, get too warm eventually, and then pull the blanket off....only to get too cold soon thereafter.

I don't know what your conversation is about, but your name is Fishtacos. And, fish tacos are one of my favorite foods, so +1.

My temperature would be a little bit cooler, but that makes perfect sense.

Probably 80-85 is ideal for me.

I tend to like warmer weather, but my specific ideal temp depends on what I am doing.

For going to the beach and/or swimming I want it hot (around 85 degrees) so that getting in the water is refreshing.

For just general relaxing outside (like cooking out or going to a baseball game) my ideal temperature is warm but not hot, like 75-80.

For long walks/hikes or playing sports I want it mild, maybe 65-75.

I don't mind occasional cool weather (down to say 50), but anything below that I generally dislike.

I like it between 60 and 65. 70 is fine I suppose, but I generally like it to be cooler. Especially for exercise.

76-78 degrees with a little humidity and light breeze. Anything between 70-82 is good with me.

I voted 85 degrees.

I love to swim. Who wants to go swimming outside in 65 degree temperatures? That's insane.

I don't mind a bit of humidity at all. That means it will still be in the 70s at night, which means girls will be wearing summer dresses at 10pm instead of North Face jackets.

Warmer weather is also better for ice cream and popscicles (and cold beer). People overall are just more social when it's warmer outside. You don't see any Corona commercials where the guy and the girl are dreaming of 65 degree days with light jackets.

That's me EXACTLY, and I also voted for 65 degrees. Ideally, it would be a humid, breezy, and partly sunny day, so that it's mostly cool but with enough sunshine to get a little warmth here and there.
