What does OML mean on Snapchat?

On Snapchat and other social media platforms, OML often stands for ‘Oh My Lord.’ This is an alternative expression to ‘Oh My God’ or ‘OMG,’ and can be used virtually the same way.

OML in this context can be used to express anything from exasperation and anger to excitement. It may be used as part of a sentence, but it can also be used on its own to respond to something someone has sent.

OML can also stand for ‘On My Life’ in many cases. ‘On My Life’ is used to emphasize that what you are saying is entirely true, and can be a shortened version of ‘I swear on my life,’ or something to that effect.
