    As far as I'm concerned, this phrase is concerned with the intensity of feeling or passion. However, I'm not sure how to use it. For example: Can I use it like this: You always blow hot and cold, nothing is perpetual in your interest.

    Thank you very much, have a nice Sunday ahead.

    Re: blow hot and cold

    I can't tell where I am in my relationship with Maria. She blows hot and cold. One day, she asks me to be her date at her cousin's wedding, the next day, she's too busy to even get a cup of coffee.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
