Meet the 'TWITs' - Teenage Women In Their Thirties

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This We've had WAGS, yuppies and metrosexuals; now meet our newest social phenomenon, TWITs.

The TWITs are "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.

Melbourne fashion model Kelly Johns is proud to be a TWIT.

Ms Johns keeps her age a secret but admits she is in her 30s.

"People have a perception of me as being young and fun and when I tell them my age it changes the way they see me," she said.

She doesn't have children, is single and said the freedom of youth shouldn't be a distant memory.

"I am here to have good clean fun, party it up and live my life." she said.

"If I found the right man I would settle down and have kids, but I am not going to sit around at home waiting."

Nightclub owners also say they have noticed a transformation on their dance floors, as Generation X women take a second bite of the apple of youth.

"We are getting a lot more women in their 30s coming in," said Bill Gianoulas from Chasers nightclub.

"They are hot women who more than likely are career oriented, going to the gym judging by their figures, immaculately dressed and are confident, intelligent and fun."

Social researcher Mark McCrindle said the TWIT phenomenon was here to stay.

"Society values youth. We don't look up to older people the way we did last century," he said.
