If cougars are women over the age of 40 who “prey” upon younger men, and pumas are women just like them, but a tad younger, than what the heck is a TWIT? According to Australia’s Herald Sun, TWIT stands for Teenage Women In Their Thirties.
Just like men with Peter Pan-syndrome who are not ready to grow up, TWITs are putting serious relationships and parenthood on hold, instead choosing to continue partying and enjoying the freedoms they discovered in their teens.
So, in other words, TWITs are just like pumas, only they’re all about having fun and, like, partying over landing a younger man. Why, why, why so many nicknames for women and the lifestyle choices they make that are not so crazy different from men? [News.com.au]
