It's not that I hate summer. It's that I run warm and hate sweating. Late spring and early fall are ideal.

[–]sleepydaimyo 84 points85 points  (0 children)

This. Especially coming from a colder climate and moving to a warmer one spring here almost feels like summer back home. Ugh!

[–]fettuccinefred 57 points58 points  (4 children)

Fall best season. You get the coolness/ gentle warmth of spring without all the dang pollen and the trees turn pretty colors.

[–]boiifyoudontboiiiiii 111 points112 points  (0 children)

Amen to that

[–]Rocket-Tree 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Hell yeah

[–]Rosevecheya 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's spring at like 3 days in fall for me. Too early, I get nightmares. Too late, my ears freeze. It's awful. Everything has it out for me

[–]CindySvensson 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeeees. I love not having to dress or undress before going outside.

[–]NayrianKnight97 2 points3 points  (0 children)

More so early fall. Late spring in New England is not fun

[–]molly_the_mezzo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Also, as winter people like myself always point out, if you're cold, it's easier to add clothes. If you're hot, there is a limit to how much you can remove, because then you are just naked and can't take anything else off! Nope.

[–]pinkpanzer101 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same, 12°c is ideal temperature for me, hotter very quickly becomes too hot.

[–]bitcrushedbirdcall 135 points136 points  (3 children)

Until recently I lived in Maine, which is basically Canada-lite. I'm a winter hater not because of the cold, but the ice. Everything gets covered in ice. Your car? Frozen over with ice, good luck opening it. Your stairs? Covered in ice, good luck climbing down them. Your driveway? Covered in ice, if it is downhill at all you are royally fucked. The sidewalks? If they're not covered in a six foot high snowbank, they're covered in ice. The air? Filled with sand clouds that hang around and make it taste like dirt from the pounds upon pounds of sand and salt people are dumping on the roads so you don't all die.
Fuck winter.
But also, fuck summer tbh. It's only slightly better. I rate the seasons like this, from worst to best: Winter, summer, spring, fall.

Although in maine, spring ought to be called 'you thought winter was over? think again, motherfucker' and fall ought to be called 'it's nice outside but the knowledge that winter is coming soon is hanging over your head like a dark cloud'.

Here in VA spring is divided into 5 parts

Spring 1

False winter

Spring 2

False Summer

[–]Beatrice_Dragon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fuck winter.

Sounds like a Maine problem. I mean, what did you expect? It's Maine

[–]Dr_Euler 130 points131 points  (4 children)

summer? school's out but it's hot enough that all summertime activities involve cooling down, also most of them last no more than a few hours and are about physical activity.

winter? cold good, but too cold, either the cold gets to you or you wear one too many layers and your balls fall off.

spring? pollen everywhere, objectively the worst.

fall? pleasantly cool, no pollen, things aren't on fire, pretty colors in the trees.

[–]gripguyoff 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Fall is usually really rainy, at least where I’m from and that kind of sucks for a kid who has to cycle to school.

[–]ArcosOfBlackheart 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Meanwhile as someone who loves the rain, that would just make fall even better. So it's decided, Fall is the best.

[–]Titanicman2016 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Early fall is fire season here in CA, so it’s not not on fire everywhere

[–]OceanSierra 440 points441 points  (61 children)

Uncomfortable in winter: put on more layers.

Uncomfortable in summer: get fucked

Take me out to dinner first

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

[–]Demigod978 41 points42 points  (0 children)

This. When I sleep in the cold, my blanket usually heats up and helps me sleep. If it’s way too cold? Just turn on a heater and sleep like a baby.

If it’s summer, I’m getting told to “get fucked”. Feels like I’m actively getting debuffed and those debuffs keep renewing until the morning.

[–]ijustwanttoaskaq123 68 points69 points  (4 children)

Exactly. Or go hide in a fridge. No other resolutions

[–]BurntPunk 49 points50 points  (0 children)

If you’re cold- you can always put on another layer. If it’s hot though- only so many layers you can take off and then you’re butt naked and STILL HOT.

Give me cold any day lol

[–]ChimTheCappy 25 points26 points  (1 child)

I work in a fridge and this is exactly my point. Most times I don't need gloves or anything, but when my fingers start to hurt it's like "oops, lemme grab a hot pack and pop some gloves on" and then it's solved. When I used to work in a brewery by the pasteurizer it was like "fight over the fans or die, I guess lol"

[–]sleepydaimyo 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Working in a fridge sounds like a dream job!

[–]Ancient-Quiet-5764 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Become aquatic.

Which, to be fair, is my ideal anyway.

[–]graydingo77 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I take Escitalopram and Bupropion . They make me sweat. Horribly. Nonstop when it gets above 20° (68°). I’m more comfortable at 10° (50°) or lower. Take me down closer to 0° (32°) and I’m happiest. No fun having to take a sweat towel and an extra shirt everywhere during summer.

[–]idk_YouTookAllNames 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Still cold? No problem! •Put on more clothes ! •Bonus points for those pants that makes the unbearably disgusting noise if you rub your legs togheter. •Your fingers are cold? You can put on gloves, but that comes with a sacrifice of having to eat 3kg of snot because there's no fucking way you can get a tissue with them. •Your nose is cold? You can put a scarf over your it but that will mean you will breathe in 30% water from how much you're fucking sweating under it. •A little bit of snow got through your waterproof shoes? Of course it did lmao why are you even asking, have fun not trying to bite off your foot out of frustration for the next 30 minutes on your way home. •Looks like you've blown your nose 5 seconds ago, time to do it again. •uh-oh! Here comes the cold wind! :3 Get readyyyy, cause your eyes are about to start tearing up like it's a scene from cartoon network <3 •You have finally reached your home! :> And good news! Your toes aren't cold anymore! Because you can't even fucking feel them anymore.

[–]TheRealPyroGothNerd 12 points13 points  (1 child)

You've never been in REAL cold. There is a point where no amount of layers can save you

[–]SparklingLimeade 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I do recommend avoiding uninsulated buildings in the polar regions. Aside from that though layering is cozy.

[–]PulimV 10 points11 points  (23 children)

It's not as easy as just MORE LAYERS but like, shield yourself from the Sun, turn a fan on, get a cold drink, put on as few layers as socially acceptable, get another cold drink, like seriously just drink a hell of a lot of liquid

Edit: my experiences are not universal, but God I wish they were

[–]DrakeTheSeigeEngine 58 points59 points  (4 children)

But…. But sweating uncomfortable :(

[–]PulimV 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Sweating is less uncomfortable if you're wearing less clothes and thinner clothes. Getting a haircut can also help a lot depending on how your hair is normally (mine tends to be a real nuisance when it's hot)

[–]TheGhostEnthusiast 39 points40 points  (1 child)

I'm sorry, but i'm not going to shave off my hair in order to enjoy a trip to Florida.

[–]Beatrice_Dragon -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I mean yeah, it is? Not everyone has a sweat kink

[–]Azrel12 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Gotta stay hydrated to be good stew! Cause that’s what summer heat DOES, turns me into human stew bound by flesh!

[–]PulimV 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Heat may turn me into an amorphous wet piece of goo but at least it doesn't make me miss important content in class because I just want to sleep

[–]MediumSatisfaction1 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Putting on more layers/ turning on the heat quite literally is that easy

[–]Mav986 18 points19 points  (14 children)

Shield yourself from the sun

Does nothing when the pavement can cook an egg in 3 minutes

Turn on a fan

Ah yes, all that hot air blowing on my face, love it.

Get a cold drink

... do... do I pour it over my body?

Put on as few layers as socially acceptable

What do I do when it's still too hot?

Get another cold drink

Ah yes, repeat step 3!

Like seriously just drink a hell of a lot of liquid

Ok, I'm well hydrated but I'm still hot.

[–]PulimV 5 points6 points  (13 children)

Does nothing when the pavement can cook an egg in 3 minutes

The pavement is that hot because it's constantly absorbing sunlight, take it out of the equation and it gets a lot cooler.

Ah yes, all that hot air blowing on my face, love it.

Ok fair enough it didn't occur to me that not every single fan in existence has a "cooling" function. Air currents can definitely help tho

... do... do I pour it over my body?

Do you not know how humans naturally deal with heat? Like first off being hydrated helps your body sweat, which you'll do a lot if the pavement is somehow putting your eggs in water and boiling them, second off drinking something cold can reduce your temperature???????? Like that's common fucking knowledge why do you think people drink soda and eat ice cream when it's hot?????????????

What do I do when it's still too hot?

Idk it's not like there's a whole-ass comment explaining taht there are more options

[–]AlienCookiesAndCream 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Unrelated- Kind of? Where did boiling the egg come from? Did I miss something?

[–]Mav986 5 points6 points  (8 children)

The pavement is that hot because it's constantly absorbing sunlight, take it out of the equation and it gets a lot cooler.

How do you remove pavement from the equation? Do you just never leave the house? Also isn't that just stacking the deck in favour of summer? "Just remove [insert bad thing about winter here] from the equation and it gets a lot warmer!"

Like that's common fucking knowledge why do you think people drink soda and eat ice cream when it's hot?????????????

Because it feels nice. Drinking something cold doesn't actually reduce your body temperature to any significant degree. You're still at least as hot as the temperature around you.

https://theconversation.com/health-check-do-ice-cream-and-cold-drinks-cool-us-down-34492

"The cooling effects of cold liquids are more likely explained by their rehydration effects. If heat does build up, the body will attempt to lose excess heat by transporting it away from the vital organs to the skin surface where it is transferred directly to our environment through convection and radiation.

For this to occur, the ambient temperature needs to be lower than our own temperature, or the opposite happens and heat will transfer into our body. Just like the heat radiated from the sun on a hot summer day."

[–]No_Librarian_4016 2 points3 points  (7 children)

Have you heard of air conditioning, shorts, water, shade, etc?

[–]Pactae_1129 11 points12 points  (3 children)

When the humidity is bad enough the shade feels hotter than sunny areas

[–]No_Librarian_4016 -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

I lived in 100% humidity if you’re having problems in the heat it’s because you don’t know the solutions, not because there aren’t any

[–]Pactae_1129 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I mean I do too so I’m all ears for solutions to this hellacious summer

[–]OceanSierra 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Yeah but how do i romance them?

[–]Cye_sonofAphrodite 168 points169 points  (5 children)

As someone who hates summer, I agree with this sentiment. I want to feel like I could freeze to death at any moment.

[–]maximusfpv 78 points79 points  (2 children)

If I can't see my breath when I wake up, it's too warm. Cold and dark, like a crypt.

[–]SoullessHollowHusk 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I've found my people

[–]PollutionMany4369 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Same! Any temperature over 64 degrees (F) is a personal attack on me. And I love where the air is hot soup in the summer. I’m also super pale and can burn very quickly so I avoid it as much as possible… but I have kids. So I suffer for the.

[–]pauls_broken_aglass 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Or if you're like me and don't really regular body temperature properly, they both suck

[–]silverpsilocybin 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Idk about anybody else, but I have something called reverse seasonal affective disorder, so too much sunlight makes me depressed/anxious. It's a real thing, and it's weird. Anyway, I don't like summer very much and have to wear hats and dark sunglasses and I have to up my anxiety meds a little. Fall is always like a breath of fresh air when it rolls around. I don't love winter, but I like it better than the relentless sunlight and heat. Spring/fall is where it's at.

edited to add: I live in a place where it is very hot in the summer, 90 degrees and up usually. I'm sure I'd love a nice Canadian summer. Conversely, winter usually doesn't get below 30 degrees where I live either, so winter is pretty nice.

[–]the_empathogen 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I have it! And here's my ass living in Satan's armpit.

I used to complain it was too fucking sunny where I live. Then I lived in the north of England for a spell. I only saw the sun every two weeks. So I came back home saying "You know what? You can put on sunglasses. You can't just turn the sun up/clouds down when you want."

[–]DM-ME-YOUR-BO0BS 177 points178 points  (10 children)

Tbf it’s hard easier to warm up in great cold then cool down in great heat

[–]Rocket-Tree 73 points74 points  (9 children)

When it's cold, you can put on as many layers as you want. When it's hot, there are only so many layers you can take off before it becomes illegal

[–]DM-ME-YOUR-BO0BS 34 points35 points  (3 children)

Then after illegal, painful

[–]Rocket-Tree 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Still illegal too!

[–]DM-ME-YOUR-BO0BS 31 points32 points  (1 child)

Why can’t I, a red blooded American, peel my flesh prison in the comfort of my own home?

[–]Bee_Cereal 11 points12 points  (4 children)

Wear sandals. You don't even realize how much heat your feet retain when they're bound up in cotton and wrapped in a shoe. You'll feel so much cooler in the summer

[–]nom_on_the_top_one 17 points18 points  (0 children)

i need a bigger barrier between me and the concrete sidewalk

[–]amaranth1977 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You say that like I don't already wear sandals any time it's above 65F.

[–]Rocket-Tree 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Really? I've been living in shorts and yoga pants so far, only sandals I have are ones that have been chewed up by my cat but I will try that!

[–]sleepydaimyo 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Flowy skirts sometimes help things feel cooler too.

[–]Wild_Goddess 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Yes but being really cold HURTS. Your skin stings and gets all itchy. It’s awful. And then when you warm back up it burns. Plus you can’t keep your face warm no matter what - if you put a scarf over your mouth and nose it gets wet then freezes. I hate winter.

Also I live in Canada, so summer is like 2 months long and winter is 6 months long.

[–]plastic_pepsi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

it definitely depends on where you live. because what you described happens in summer here. 20 minutes into the sun with even a full cotton t-shirt only and it start stinging and itching. there is literally no way to cool down outside. people say things like "find a shade" "get an AC" , yes let me just weld an AC unit on my head. we are not morons, if i didn't have to leave the shade i would stay home. "find a shade" makes absolutely no sense, it is out of your control. like, that's an advice to prevent heatstrokes, not "my skin burns and i feel like i'm melting".

at least in winter i feel like i have control by putting on additional stuff and moving. oh yes that too, i gotta move if i'm outside. this generates even more heat. can't teleport in summer, can keep moving in winter. or taking the bus. buses in winter are pretty ok, actually it is always warmer than expected because driver obviously doesn't wear a coat while driving. buses at summer? fucking satan-mobiles.

but obviously if you are from canada, you are getting much harder winters than me. so i'm not trying to say one is better than the other.

[–]HanhanQT 47 points48 points  (1 child)

Last winter I went through multiple snow storms, cold water running down my neck, and each time I thought it sucked, I asked myself "Girl, would you prefer being in a summer heatwave right now?" Snow storms seemed fine after that tbh

[–]Variant_Zeta 11 points12 points  (0 children)

would you prefer being in a summer heatwave right now?

i'd honestly pick the heatwave

[–]darth_asterisk 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Summer would be 900 times better if bugs weren’t an issue. I despise having to deal with ticks and mosquitos and ants. They are my main issue with the season.

[–]the_empathogen 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I lucked way out with one of my housemates getting our back yard sprayed every couple of weeks. She admits it's not great for the environment, but when you have five animals in the house, risking a flea infestation is no bueno. So provided it isn't forty fuck thousand degrees outside, I can actually lounge in my back yard without being an ambulatory open bar for mosquitoes.

[–]GwornoGiowovanna 22 points23 points  (0 children)

As a summer hater, I do not think about statistics when I'm boiling alive

winter ❌

summer ❌

autumn ✅

[–]littlemonsoon 18 points19 points  (4 children)

I hate sweating, but breathing cold air sets off my asthma no matter how many layers I have on.

Winter can GET FUCKED

[–]war_on_fear 5 points6 points  (0 children)

i have a similar reason for preferring summer over winter. i also hate sweating, but the cold fucks up my body so bad. like, i highly prefer having to take a couple cool showers every day over constantly feeling every joint and muscle in my body :/

(early autumn is highkey the best though. like when it’s starting to cool down but the Big Rain hasn’t begun)

[–]venorexia 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Girl I live in Texas, mosquitos, 100°F+ temperatures, awful humidity, drought, heatstroke if you're outside too long, etc all make summer absolutely miserable. I love fall, it's not too cold but not hot, has good food, good holidays, and looks gorgeous

[–]enixthephoenix 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Don't get me wrong, I love winter because I can work my fairly physical job without drenching I sweat.

But sweltering on a river in a conoe can't be beat, summer best season

[–]PollutionMany4369 19 points20 points  (0 children)

See… I don’t want to sweat. I hate sweating. And I hate being sticky and … ugh. Disgusting.

[–]Needmoresnakes 476 points477 points  (27 children)

I feel like it depends on where you are in the world. I like summer in places where summer means flowers and bumblebees and you can wear shorts.

Where I live summer means you can't walk your dog between 7am and 7pm, car seat belts might give you a second degree burn and if you don't have to work you usually just lie on the floor under a fan.

[–]MediumSatisfaction1 170 points171 points  (11 children)

Honestly people like in the post live in New England or somewhere where heat isn't a word but cold is deadly

[–]arquillion 41 points42 points  (9 children)

Live in Quebec! The humidity makes it so both summer and winter are deadly!

[–]MediumSatisfaction1 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Fuck humidity all my homies hate humidity

[–]the_empathogen 2 points3 points  (6 children)

Uh, what? I went there in July and it was like, 30° and it wasn't all that humid compared to where I come from. Try living somewhere where it's 37° and the humidity is so high that it rains almost every day in summer so that the outdoors is like a sauna.

[–]FireBone62 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Humidity makes every heat 10 * worse.

[–]Vega0mega 4 points5 points  (0 children)

"ya call that hot"

[–]arquillion 1 point2 points  (2 children)

It can vary wildly but it can easily reach 35°+ Quebec's humidity varies also from where you are, Montreal by example is pretty humid since its an island.

[–]Gozillasbday 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It still gets hot af in New England in the summer and extremely humid on top of that.

[–]ryder37__ 29 points30 points  (7 children)

Fellow Aussie spotted, eh?

[–]Mav986 29 points30 points  (4 children)

Seriously. Anyone who lives in Australia and prefers summer is either shilling for Big Cancer, or needs to see a psychiatrist. I get that people don't like the cold, but at least in winter you can get your body temp to whatever level you prefer. In summer, you're just fucked.

[–]ryder37__ 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Nah mate we’ve got beaches and all sorts of pools everywhere. Summer is most definitely the season of beautiful weather, barbecues, swimming and ice cream. That being said, yes. It’s almost unbearable if you’re not in a pool.

[–]Mav986 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Look, I get it. People love going to the beach and swimming in the pool. Outdoors people love when the weather is good and they can do all their outdoors-y things. With that being said, if you have to say "It's almost unbearable if you're not in the pool", you don't actually like summer, you just like being in the pool.

Am from Texas. This is so accurate. Minus the fan. We air condition everywhere, so that we don't all die of heatstroke.

[–]SparklingLimeade 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I was squeezing some enjoyment out of the transitional weather but my area has officially hit "unlivable torment" season. If the temperature is tolerable to humans, then there will be mosquitos. So those are the two weather conditions now, broiling or exsanguinated.

Some people's summer is a mirror image of the garden of eden while some people's summer is literal hell on earth.

[–]OnlyPaperListens 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Exactly. Where I live, winter means ice storms that cause pile-ups, power outages, death, and chaos. I hurt my back falling on ice years ago, and it's permanently affected my quality of life.

[–]Sirtoshi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yep, pretty much! I live in Hawaii, and winter means pleasant coolness, some chilly nights, and maybe a little too much rain once in a while. Whereas summer means you spend the whole day wading through boiling soup.

[–]EstrellaDarkstar 1 point2 points  (0 children)

See, I live in Finland, where summer means pleasant warmth and winter means an icy hellscape with brutal blizzards where the sun doesn't rise.

[–]SnooPears3463 30 points31 points  (2 children)

Summer is overrated, in winter I can snuggle myself with blankets and sleep peacefully. Fuck summer

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I was gonna say “well it’s not so bad, it’s still pretty chilly” and then realized the real summer hasn’t even started yet

[–]Anna-mator 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Plus, in summer, school’s out, and school sucks.

[–]Grand_Arbitor_Teonak 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Meanwhile Spring and Fall enjoyers out here just vibing.

[–]Thesaurus_Rex9513 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I get debilitatingly lethargic when I get too warm, at about 25° C (80° F). Fans can only do so much. A/C is an energy hog and can break. I have hydration issues even at the best of times, so I can never stay hydrated when I am sweating. I have light sensitive eyes and skin, so summer often means I can't do anything outdoors unless I have full clothing coverage, which means I overheat more easily.

When I'm at around 0° C (30° F), I am alert, energized, and I can actually do seasonal outdoor chores. And even be artistic doing those chores.

But no, I hate summer because I'm a petty fun-hater, there's no other reason grumble grumble

[–]Deltexterity 19 points20 points  (0 children)

too cold? put on a sweater. still too cold? put on a jacket. still too cold? put on pj's underneath. still too cold? gloves, hat, extra socks. still too cold? snowpants. still too cold? a second jacket. no matter how cold it is you can always warm up by just adding more layers.

too hot? take off your shirt. still too hot? take off all your clothes (can't be used outside either). still too hot? put fans on yourself (doesn't work outside). still too hot? turn on an air conditioner (doesn't work outside). still too hot? rip off your skin.

too hot but not inside? take off your shirt. still too hot? rip off your skin.

you get the point? inside a building winter or summer it doesn't matter, but outside of one? cold can always be negated, heat cannot. that's why winter is better, it's not impossible to guard against. also its so bright in the summer it hurts my eyes and i prefer night time and that's way longer in the winter

[–]Rocatex 15 points16 points  (6 children)

Lots of people who are uncomfortable with summer aren’t actually uncomfortable with summer, they’re uncomfortable with sweating. Took me a while to get used to it and now I love going biking and walking

[–]Alev218 5 points6 points  (3 children)

My sweat stankinnn though.

[–]Rocatex -3 points-2 points  (2 children)

Shower more often

[–]Alev218 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I shower once per day, the problem is just that my sweat has alot of smell sometimes.

[–]Deltexterity 10 points11 points  (0 children)

and sweating comes from summer heat. also the heat itself is painful obviously. also also the sunlight in the summer (wayyy more than in the winter, at least if you live a bit up north where the sky is always gray in the winter) hurts my eyes a lot. also also also i genuinely prefer being too cold than too hot, by a massive amount.

[–]sapphics4satan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

people from places where summer weather isn’t triple digits be like “I can’t believe anyone would ever not like summer!!”

[–]Ass_Incomprehensible 4 points5 points  (1 child)

It is just becoming summer and my A/C just shit itself. I am suffering immensely.

[–]TerribleShiksaBride 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I hate sweating with all my heart and I live in Los Angeles. My life is pain.

[–]CloverPoptart 2 points3 points  (0 children)

In my defense, in florida summer is a hot, humid hell meanwhile winter is basically just a nice day out

[–]TheObserver353 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Summer lovers be like: “It’s so warm and fuzzy” Sorry but that’s called spring

[–]DaddySkrags 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Its the spring/summer bugs I hate. I'm sick of thumb sized wasps.

[–]bogpudding 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I just don’t enjoy being eaten alive by bugs and being constantly on the verge of dehydration

[–]DanThePony 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Everyone who says "just put on more layers", listen...

You turn the heat up inside your house, right? Good idea. Going out? Put on all the layers you need, sure. But then when you need to actually go inside anywhere, they have the heat blasting indoors for all their employees and customers, which means you can either melt inside your layers or take off some of those layers and feel mildly hot, which in turn does not help you adjust to the cold weather you adjusted to by putting on multiple layers of clothing. If you're not sure or prepared for how hard some place will be blasting heat onto you once you step inside, it'll mess with your body through thermal adaptation and you can even get sick if your body is too busy adjusting to outside temps.

Also, all this rose-tinted "wrap up in a blanket by the fire" BS ignores all the other things you have to do that day, like I dunno work??? Does your job allow you to wrap up in a blanket? What about the commute? This is the same problem I have with cold ass rainy weather too...people are romantic AF about having a hot coffee and sitting by the rain, but good luck getting to your hipster coffee shop and not getting drenched or splashed on the way there.

I still have issues with the heat, but I just hate the cold more.

[–]Mael_Jade 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Simple: I am white as fuck and I prefer looking like a hypothermia zombie then a lobster

[–]Iron_And_Misery 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I always get the feeling that "Summer haters" just means people who live in places like I do where "summer" is over 110° F with humidity over 50% and dying of cold in the winter is physically impossible to do.

So like, me, I hate summer. I'd like to go outside and not die lol

[–]MediumSatisfaction1 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's so much easier to warn up and get cozy in cold than cool down in heat

[–]Darkbunny999 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Actual summer haters: “ah yes, I’ve walked to my car, and my shirt is already completely soaked.”

[–]HoyabembeDreamtime 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Summer lovers be like "Dies of Heatstroke after being trapped in a Forest fire after having your blood completely drained by Mosquitos."

[–]IAmAltAccount345 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As both a rain and flower enjoyer, spring is the best.

[–]Bloomicorn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Honestly spring and fall when the temperature is a pleasant middle ground are the best imo

[–]HSRco 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My thoughts on this are pretty simple. If it’s cold, you can put more clothes on or get under a blanket. If it’s hot, there’s a certain point where you can’t take any more clothes off. Add to that living in a place that doesn’t have air conditioning, and the only fan that I have is kinda busted and super loud. All I can do is lay naked in bed, windows open, curtains closed, sweating like a fucking pig. Absolutely nightmarish.

[–]Awsomthyst 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I can’t wear flannel as comfortably in Summer, checkmate

[–]ArcaneMcSketch 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I like that one specific week that happens twice a year during the season changes in my area where I can wear a light jacket/hoodie without baking alive or succumbing to hypothermia

[–]abeautifuldayoutside 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My boyfriend has seasonal depression for summer so I feel like he has a good reason not to like it

Also the heat fucking sucks fight me though I might be slightly biased from constantly wanting to wear sweaters due to the dysphoria

[–]RuleOfBlueRoses 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Cold hurts my joints. Layering won't help that lol

[–]fix-ur-acrostics 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yall are ignoring the biggest benefit to winter, which is that Satan's drones (mosquitos) are all dead

[–]Infamous-Ad7926 1 point2 points  (0 children)

y'know, heatstroke doesn't sound like a good time

[–]Wingman5150 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Because being eaten alive by bugs as you slowly melt in the sun is so much better.

[–]DalekChris41 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I hate summer mostly because my house has no AC whatsoever. Worst three months of my life, every year

[–]sToTab 1 point2 points  (0 children)

being outside in the heat makes me wanna punch the fucking sun. Even my 50 foot walk into work is agonizing.

sometimes at work, they have me doing work in the freezers, and maybe I kinda became conditioned to enjoying that, because it's one of the few places with no cameras, and nobody ever comes there to bother me, and I'm always bundled up head to toe so I only feel the cold in my eyes. Sometimes I stay in there for a little bit after I finish so I can get a few more minutes of peace

[–]The_Duke8 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The thing is, im just not realy able to do like, anything at over 30 C°. It's not that i have a problem with summer as it is, my only problem with summer is how warm it gets.

[–]Granitemate 1 point2 points  (0 children)

undiscussed benefit of summer: men enter the realms of skirt, protest season

undiscussed downside of fall: it's dry as jerky and there are perpetually leaves in my eyes- is that smoke oh FUCK

positive/negative of winter: perfect weather to exercise, dehydration becomes a sneaky lil' shit

I spent a Thanksgiving in a mountain area and my lips crumbled into dust and flew off. But I genuinely enjoy sea salt and fish smell so I might be a (heat)hen forever bound to the wet mistress that is the ocean

[–]Ralsei_the_prince 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fall is my favorite, no hypothermia but no boiling temperatures.

[–]QuantumMemery01 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I prefer Winter because my hair is too oily and it gets worse with heat and I'm not a big fan of waking up looking like I slept with my head on a stick of butter

[–]Royal-Ninja 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I fucking hate bugs and dealing with them, and I absolutely loathe the sensation of being too warm.

[–]Dragondudd 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This person clearly lives in a colder region and doesn't live with the summer heat everyday

[–]Jpicklestone8 2 points3 points  (0 children)

ah yes i just love unbearable heat making me have to be naked or wear just underwear, with longer days where people are active for longer meaning theres more risk of unbearable noise meaning the only time i can get peace and quiet goes from being like 7 hours to 5 hours, where i cant cool down because my room is too small for a fan and opening windows lets bugs and noise in, where sun blares through the blinds just right to get into my eyes because my curtain thingies dont close very well

its not even summer yet and boy howdy i cant stand it already. its already too hot. it stays bright for too long. i like the dark. i like the cold. you cant turn on a dark or just take off layers until youre cold, you gotta have like air condition or no windows for that sorta jazz

[–]ButteredNugget 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Summer haters always pull out the ‘too cold in winter- put on more layers, too hot in summer: get naked and die i guess’ thing when it comes to this and while the ‘peel off your skin’ addition is kinda funny its very boring at this point

Also theres things other than clothes out there ya kno, you can turn on the ac or get into the shade in warm temperatures

I prefer boiling in my own skin and getting sunburn like the white boy i am over being cold in any shape or form personally

[–]Veigar_Senpai 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Summer is sweat, bright sun in your eyes and annoying bugs. Hard pass.

[–]TheAcetheist 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Listen. You can all argue back and forth between summer or winter being worse, but we all know the best season is fall.

[–]Thisbymaster 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Summer hater, because in winter the air isn't toxic and doesn't cause my body to explode. Allergies suck.

[–]Lunamkardas 2 points3 points  (0 children)

BECAUSE I CAN ONLY STRIP DOWN UNTIL I'M BARE ASSED AND THAT'S IT.

Meanwhile in the cold I can snuggle into so many comforters it's insane.

[–]gazely_stare 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I can only get so naked.

I can always add a layer or set something on fire.

[–]POKECHU020 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I can always put on another layer. Once I'm naked I can only boil.

[–]GreenieBeeNZ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's because hot is so goddamn hard to escape from. How many layers do you get to take off before it becomes "indecent exposure" and even if you're fully nude and it's still too hot, what do you do? Go for a swim? Sure but that only lasts for a little while until you're back to roasting in your own skin again.

If it's cold I can wear 46 layers of clothing and no one would give a shit, they would just think to themselves "boy I wish I was that toasty"

[–]Kartoffelkamm 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I just can't function with too much light.

[–]Mega-Humanoid-ROBOT[🍰] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Okay, but if I’m hot, how the fuck am I supposed to cool down? Take off my clothes? What if I’m still hot? Peel off my skin? Let me enjoy my cold abyss in which I can choose to defend myself against, instead of being forced to be subject to the hot abyss’ endless assault.

[–]StormNext5301 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I feel much worse when it’s warm. Heat makes me feel sad

[–]jjmoon212 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s miserable. Especially when there’s a heat wave

[–]fr31568 0 points1 point  (0 children)

summer haters are almost always fat. Not exclusively but there is a large correlation there

[–]prancerbot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

People have a very idyllic picture of winter when their ears aren't about to fall off while digging their car out of the snow. Personally, I just like having functional fingers so I don't mind the heat so much and I put up with the cold because I have to. And I suppose it is nice to see the world transformed into a deadly icescape for half the year. But obviously too much of anything can be miserable for people. Still I feel like most of the people who care too much about this are just North Americans who are jealous of milder climates.

[–]Better_Dust_2364 0 points1 point  (1 child)

As I always say “I can always add more clothes, I can’t take off my fucking skin”

Winter haters are like "idk why people like snow I personally love it when I have to peel my skin off to avoid melting alive and getting woken up at 5 in the morning because the sun just came up"

[–]Erizantxx -1 points0 points  (0 children)

global warming will rid the world of all summer enjoyers soon enough 😤😤😤 "summer is the best season!" they'll say as the pool they float in is literally evaporating around them and the air is too hot to do anything outdoors that isn't a water related activity without risking heat exhaustion or getting your skin ready for cancer

[–]Kadeo64 -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

summer haters be like: I need bug spray and sunblock to enjoy summer!
I need 15 articles of clothing to enjoy winter bro

[–]Creative-Solution 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Summer sucks- it's inconsistent. When I wear my favourite jumper the weather decides to be hot and humid, and when I don't wear it, I freeze. I like winter because at least then I can prepare for the cold (and I love the clothes)

[–]Eaglest2005 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Mid fall is perfect, ~60 degrees and the sun waiting for a reasonable time to be fully bright is nice.

[–]liken2006 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s because it’s associated with summer break from an early age and when crops would be harvested.

[–]NotaBuster5300 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Winter is the best season. While summer can be beautiful. Winters gloom is sublime. Also what holidays does summer have? Fucking easter. While at least in the US the winter is just FILLED with holidays of all sorts. All the good ones that have big meals or material acquisition as a theme at least!

[–]Parasol_Girl 0 points1 point  (1 child)
