How can I improve my tolerance for cold? (Cold weather, cold hands, etc.)

I'm cold in almost every restaurant I go to. I'm cold at work in an office building that others are comfortable in. I live in New England and dread the winter. I recoil when my boyfriend touches me with even slightly cold hands. I swear I feel even the slightest breezes or drafts.
Sure, there are plenty of ways to warm up temporarily, but I would like to improve my overall tolerance for cold temperatures so I'm not as cranky about being cold. I would like to feel like a normal person who doesn't need to wear a jacket in a restaurant or fingerless gloves at work.
(Btw, I don't believe there's a medical problem such as poor circulation behind my issues with cold.)
Are there any tricks for improving one's tolerance for cold? (Or even for temperatures that others seem to find comfortable?)
