To want to warm my freezing cold feet on dh's warm legs ?

(24 Posts)

Of course you're not being unreasonable!

I like to score OH out of ten for his manly composure. He's quite good at not wincing.

YABU, DH tries to do this to me. I hate it and he has the bruises to prove it grin.

YABVU. Get yourself one of those giant tartan wool-lined slipper things and stop being annoying. He has a right to warm legs.

The only trouble is, of course, that on hot summer nights (or peri-menopausal ones), DH is about as welcome as a hot water bottle. So he gets prodded and moaned at for being 'like a bloody furnace' and occasionally sent downstairs.

Some women are never happy grin

I didn't get my way last night hmm

But love the stories of men warming their women's cold feet. Something very gallant about it all smile

As someone who has a husband with iceberg feet, the best way to get a warm up is get them to come your way for a cuddle rather than you go to them. That way when he overheats he can roll away from u and back to a cold side of bed.

I pretty much knew DP was the man for me when I crawled into bed late one night.

I was freezing, he was asleep.

When I accidentally made contact with him, in his slumber, I expected him to recoil.

Instead he wrapped his sleeping form around me, defrosting my icy core in seconds and wrapping my icy trotters in a cocoon of steaming ManFeet.

Reader, I married him. wink

ISn't this in the booklet guys get when they get married, "thou shalt warm her feet?"

I'm pregnant. My feet hurt from being cold

I'm an NHS Podiatrist and I can catergorically state that Babies steal the blood from your feet shock

<<Disclaimer: not entirely true but I'm sure the sheer bulk in the abdominal cavity compresses the femoral artery.
Or something>>..

I blamed DS for the hideous night cramp I had when I was pg with him.
He didn't even look up from his iPod but gave me a hmm look.

Yanbu I always do this! Dp doesn't mind too much

Shodan I am going to show DH your post. He hates having cold feet anywhere near him and I am constantly telling him other men do it. Now I have concrete evidence. thanks

OP definitely NBU, although I fear you are going to have a battle on your hands.

Not at all I have the same problem with my DH complaining about my cold iceberg feet.

You need to offer to trade - your cooling hand on his oh so overheated forehead early evening in front of the tv in return for him warming your feet later on in bed grin

Shodan Sat 27-Apr-13 22:26:06

This is how it goes: DH gets into bed on my side to warm it up. He scoots over, I jump in. He turns on his side facing away from me and bends his legs. I tuck my feet into the crook of his knees and he bends his legs more to snuggle them in securely.

Result: toasty toes grin

Funnily enough my dh gets abit aggrieved by me warming my icy feet on him. Caused many an argument. Must be a common problem.

butterflyexperience Sat 27-Apr-13 22:00:49

Haha he's jumped a few times already wink

Socks are not going to work this time hmm

Ohh I like the suggestion of him warming my side if bed too. MN is a wonderful place smile

StuntGirl Sat 27-Apr-13 21:57:19

I am cold like a frigging iceberg, I frequently warm my cold hands on my partners warm body! grin

YADNBU

DH and I discuss argue this topic constantly grin

YANBU. I've been doing this for years. wink

Shodan Sat 27-Apr-13 21:51:02

Absolutely.

And he should warm your side of the bed before you get in.

There's a Law about it somewhere, I'm sure.

<tiny fib>

Wear thick socks!

Unitedwestand Sat 27-Apr-13 21:50:16

Do it and watch him jump

butterflyexperience Sat 27-Apr-13 21:46:53

*its his duty right?

butterflyexperience Sat 27-Apr-13 21:46:30

I'm pregnant, my feet hurt from being cold.

It's his to let me right?
