I don't love 95 degree weather by any means. I just hate being cold. I like summer much better than winter, but i think it's because i live in Pennsylvania. If i lived in Texas or Arizona, i think i would hate summer and love fall and winter. How many people are true Heat Lovers vs. simply people who like to be comfortably warm and dislike being cold?

I'm both, I love 95 degree weather and I detest anything below 45.

I would say I hate cold more than I love heat.. I love heat too but even I have limits.. if it's over 95F (humid) or 100F (dry) then I find it a bit too much.

I really hate cold, but only mildly dislike intense heat. For me, "hot" starts at 30C, "cold" starts around 12C. If I lived in a climate that never saw either I would be quite happy, but I'd rather err with what many subtropical climates get i.e. a few hot months with a warm to cool ( but not cold ) rest of the year.

Also, it's a matter of degrees and humidity. 10C is better than 40C, 0C is better than 45C, and so forth.

As a cold lover and a heat hater I'm not eligible to answer the original question, but for certain distinctions and overlaps exist among the group branded as heat-lovers. Some truly love heat, and others just hate cold without loving heat (but still heat is preferable to them). This latter group is more accurately described as cold-haters. Some heat-lovers just love heat without hating cold, and there are others (most of the group I imagine) that both love heat and hate cold.

I love heat, but don't really hate cold. I don't have any use for it, but it doesn't particularly upset me.

Don't care much much for extreme heat (100+*F) but the 90s feel nice at the beach. Can't stand the cold at all though...I like temps in the 70s and 80s.

I loathe and despise cold with the white-hot intensity of a thousand suns ...

I hate cold... When you live in a cold climate though you do tend to love the heat of the summer... Good question.

I hate heat and loathe humidity. My perfect weather is between 20 degrees and 60 degrees, dry and sunny, and I don't mind when it's colder. I could never adjust to a humid environment. I feel like a baked potato in foil, internal temp just going up and up without much sweating. I find summers in New England too humid.
