I've heard both of those reasons numerous times in various forms. But to me, the misery of hot weather isn't worth getting to see attractive girls wearing less.
I'm also one of those weird people who find most girls more attractive when they're wearing classy winter clothing instead of dressing like hookers in summer.

One of the reasons I love warm weather is because I love water sports! I wish I could live in a climate where I could go swimming outdoors or to the beach 365 days a year... it would be like a dream come true!

I also love warm weather because the warmer the climate generally, the more species of exotic plants you will have and I love gardening. There aren't many species that can survive in the Taiga compared to a Tropical rainforest

When you retire you can do your water sports 365 days a year if you're not retired, you'll be working 5 days a week and only be at the beach about 100 days of the year max

If I lived in a climate where I could swim 365 days a year.. I'd be at the beach almost every day after work and on weekends... or swimming in a swimming pool. As it is, I swim on a masters team that practices indoors 2-3 times a week and I've been doing it for years. So, why would that change?

If that's the case, then it won't change. Most people don't do what you do and end up coming home tired from work

Even though I hate hot weather, I must admit that it seems more conducive to fascinating and colorful plants. I might say the same for fish, as well. Tropical fish, whether fresh or saltwater, are usually wonderfully colorful.

It is not natural to have a strong dislike of sunshine and warmth. There is something un-human about such people. Sun is the primary giver of life and energy. Loving cold and darkness seems like liking death.

Thanks for calling us un-human. Some of us just prefer to be comfortable, and for me, comfortable doesn't exist when it's hot and sunny.

I don't really care if it sunny or cloudy but..

I went to Spain in April 2006, the temperatures were around 26C and I got heatstroke and spent the next 3 days in bed puking my guts out. I just cannot tolerate heat, I just can't, and too much sun eventually leads to me getting headaches.. and don't even get me started on heat and humidity back in the UK.. I have memories of the severe summers, walking home sweating buckets, coming home with a throbbing headache.. when it's cloudy and cool or even sunny and cold I find it much easier to get things done..

Some people simply don't care for heat and sun, some have medical reasons. Calling people unhuman for disliking the sun is a bit harsh..
