Cold for me starts at around 5C, any colder than that temp and I NEED gloves and a toque.

Just last week I was outside in 7C and windy weather for 3 hours and my hands absolutely froze, just like they do in the winter. It wasn't just me, everyone around was freezing. Had to run the hands under hot water for a few minutes to get circulation back.

It sucks to have poor circulation in hands and feet, as you need to always dress warmer than others. I guess I am not made for cold.

Any temp between 0c and 10c I would consider cold overall. However, this varies as during early Spring any tamp above 10c is warm, but in early Autumn any temp below 20c is freezing!

Depends, but if night or cloudy, then mid to low 50s. If sunny, then maybe somewhere in the 40s. I love the cold though. When you love something, you have a higher tolerance for it. Hot is 80s+. Day and night make no difference, but rather wind and humidity. Windy and 85 is better than no wind and 80.

Anything below 10C/50F I consider cold. If the temp in the morning is below that it makes it uncomfortable to get ready for work.

For me, below freezing or at least when there is ice and snow on the road to deal with.

Something like that:
above -5 °C (23 °F) - not really cold
-5 to -10 °C (14 °F to 23°F) - moderately cold
-10 to -20 °C (14 °F to -4 °F) - just cold
-20 to -30 °C (-4 °F to -22 °F) - very cold
-30 to -40 °C (-22 °F to -40 °F) - severe cold
below -40 °C (-40 °F) - extremely cold

But actually it can be cold when it's above -5 °C, but windy as hell.
"Just cold" is my favourite winter weather, when it's about -15 °C (5 °F) - it's pretty comfortable, if you are dressed properly, and it also has that "cold" spirit, which does not appear at -5 to -10 °C temps, hah.
