Single digits is definitely cold.

(And I am miserable when it's over 80.)

It's all relative. Yes, I live in a colder climate. And I love it!
Just about the same for me.

No wind is important, cold wind can make 50F feel terrible.

It's weird but 40s F can feel colder if wet and windy than 20s F on a nice sunny calm winter day

I'm a bit of a Paradox. I love the heat and actually enjoy desert life. I feel cold if the temperature is below 80F I actually feel most comfortable when the temp is near 100.

However, I choose to live in North Dakota. Been freezing my toes off for, will be 5 years. on May 1, But it has all been worth it. Some things in live are worth more than climate.

Depends on other factors such as wind speeds, sun or shade and humidity.
I have been more comfortable in full sun, no wind and both temperature and humidity in single digits (Fahrenheit) than I have been with the thermometer in the 40's (5-7 C) degrees and a wicked southwest wind blowing sleet in my face.

It depends on the wind, the season, the sky etc.
In general, i would say that 13ºC/55ºF is already cold if it's summer but it's just cool if you're in winter.
And in winter, 5ºC/41ºF is really cold for me, especially with wind. Even 10ºC/50ºF can be very uncomfortable with the famous 'minuano' wind here. As i said, it depends on the factors...

"Cold": Less than 25 F if it is sunny, 35 F otherwise. 35-50 F is ''cool'', 50-65 is "mild", and 65-75 is "warm", and 75+ is hot.

Here, we bottom out around -55 most years, and top out around around 90.

In the middle of winter (with windchill factor):
-50: don't go outside unless you have to.
-40: pay attention: cars aren't happy, pipes and fingertips freeze fast.
-20: no unnecessary extended outdoor activities. Need full arctic gear if you're outside more than 15 minutes or so. Vehicles must have electric block heater to start.
0: Need to be careful about clothing and outdoor safety, but generally pleasant mid winter weather if the wind is calm. Good idea to plug in vehicles.
20: Really nice winter weather. Bundle up and get outside!
35: Gloves and hats come off, t-shirts if it's sunny. Everybody's ecstatic if it's March, but a little concerned about melting snow and overflow if it's January.

In summer, anything below 50 (or almost any time it's raining and/or windy) is "chilly," and in the 30s is "cold."

Same for me in Saskatchewan.

I would say anything below 28F if there is no wind would start to get kinda cold for me. Even low 30s and I might start to feel like I'm chilly. But it just depends. Now if the air temperature is 30 degrees with the wind well then that would make it feel really cold. But I would rather have it be too cold than too hot any day.

Daily highs below 10°C and night lows below 5° are cold for me (average winter weather), and you must wear gloves, hat and heavy jacket. Below 0°C is very cold, and you better stay inside.
Temperatures below -5°C here may occur only at night, 2-5 times each year.
The days that we had highs of -2°C in February 2012 I felt like I was living in Manitoba, it was terrible.
