Do you often find yourself asking your partner for their coat on a night out? Always in need of an extra blanket when hanging out on the couch? Well, you’re not alone!

A new study reveals the true reason for why women are often feeling colder in comparison to men. According to Journal Global Ecology and Biogeography, women are much more sensitive to temperature than men because of, well, evolution!

Women historically required heat when they were expecting babies, meanwhile men needed to adapt to colder temperatures to be able to go outside and hunt for food. It really just comes down to that.

So, the next time someone asks you to lower the temperature in the house… You know what excuse to give!

Stay warm out there!
