FMyLife allows its visitors and/or members to post 'FMLs', or short snippets containing one painful 'fuck my life' moment from that day. Each FML must begin with 'Today,' and end with 'FML.'
As of March of 2009, submitted FMLs are moderated by the site's users first, and a select few are then chosen to be sent to FMyLife moderators. Once site moderators approve FMLs they are posted on the homepage.
An example FML: "Today, I walked into the kitchen and accidentally broke my mother's vase. I said, 'Accidents happen.' She replied, 'Yeah, like your birth.' FML"
