    Default cold/warm with/to

    Hello,

    Following the pattern:

    She is very kind to me / He is really nice to everyone...

    Can we say?:

    She is really cold/warm/agreeable to me or she is very warm/cold/agreeable with me.

    Thank you for your help.

    Default Re: cold/warm with/to

    In American usage,

    'She is very cold toward me.'

    'She is very warm with me.'

    'She is not agreeable toward [that].'

    But the final unannounced word in the last sentence must be a thing, not a person.
