It really isn't that hard, if you follow the links, you really can't go wrong.

59 Since you and your fiancÚ(e) or partner committed to a shared life
together to the exclusion of all others, have you lived separately and
apart for any periods or time?
Give details of periods and reasons for the separation
Hi Teedo

I am currently struggling with those two questions as well. Did you come right with them ? Also not sure if it meant the day we started dating or become engaged.

any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Well this is my interpretation only...

The old forms used to allow the first time you met could include ig,,,internet etc etc....Now its the FIRST TIME YOU MET IN PERSON n decided to commit to each other.

The next is kinda tricky on shore/off shore thing....so basically you appear to be off shore, then its the times your partner or you visited/lived with each other n the reasons why one had to return home....tourist visa-work reasons etc.

Dunan gives great advice.

Yes, that date is the date you met in person. You must have met in person to qualify for the PMV, and you must have photographic evidence of it.

For the other question you asked about, when I was filling it out, I just talked about why we hadn't lived together for the past couple of years. You don't have to have lived together at all for the PMV, so don't worry if you haven't. If your religion or your culture or your family doesn't permit you to live together with someone before you're married, it's okay to say that, too.

It is good news as it means that a co is now working on your application. If you are lucky your co will not contact you until a decision is made. Generally this will take between 4 to 5 months currently though timeframes can change and it may be longer. The co will only contact you otherwise if there is something missing from your application. Try and remember everytime someone contacts them and they respond it is taking them away from the work of processing visas. So try and be patient and just wait for the approval in may or june. Good luck
