What does PYT stand for?

Pretty young thing

PYT stands for "pretty young thing" and is typically used to refer to an attractive girl. Michael Jackson initially popularized it as the sixth single in 1983 off the Thriller album.

You will most likely see PYT when messaging online, whether in a chatroom or on social media. You may also see it in a text message when talking about an attractive young person, most likely a female.

An example of when you might send PYT is when a cute girl walks into a coffee shop, and you need to text your BFF about it. Or, you might message on someone's picture that they are a PYT, which may come off as incredibly creepy.
