Why women are always cold (why I want to close the window, please)

#women #cold #pleaseclosethewindow
Dear P.,
can we please start closing the window again?? Pretty please?
Here come 5 + 1 reasons why women are always cold an men are hot. Well.. you know what I mean!
But either way, muscles, general heat production due to metabolism, not as effective blood vessels and different priorities of the bodys heating system are some of them…
Let me know if I am alone here, who else is always cold??
