I'd do so, As there is nothing to authenticate that you've actually met her in 2008.

Regarding Wedding: be honest, declare it loud. (The reason for this question is to see if you are marrying a relative from your close relation which isn't legal in UK)

Yes, put the ACTUAL date that you met. Don't lie just because you cannot prove it. If, for some reason UKBA decided to query this date and found out that you lied, you will be in trouble. There's no need to provide evidence of communication that spans as far back as 2008, so just provide what you have. But don't lie. Big no no.

If you met & began a relationship first as love, say that. Unless it was a direct result of your families (arranging a meeting BEFORE you had met, etc), no need to add that.

No, as I said above, do not lie. Say you met in 2008. If you like you can include a note stating you did not save screen shots from that far back, and include the ones that you have saved. But do not lie in your application, about anything. Ever.

To be an "arranged marriage" they are looking for was it arranged for you (think more like arranged between families when you were children); not a marriage that you asked them to work through the contracts for.

When you met, should be when you met. They don't expect much from that part of your relationship (unless you only just met). Who keeps all the communication with someone they just met as a friend.

Most of the information about keeping in contact that they are looking for is in the last year or two (and that you have visited each other - if you have been in a long relationship). They aren't looking for every time you've talked in the past 6 years.

Don't lie to the UKBA, it is a really bad idea.

You can add details in the letter of introduction and letter of sponsorship.

This is what I've learnt for the "to have met"

A relationship that has developed over the Internet would not satisfy the 'to have met' requirement unless the relationship included a personal face-to-face meeting between the couple concerned. Evidence of a face-to-face meeting might include a travel history, relevant email exchanges etc.

True. But this question only pertains to when the couple met the first time. There's no need for hard-evidence for this first meeting. Hard evidence is only required for the duration of the relationship.

I agree that UKBA means to have met in person for this question and does not count "meeting" online as to have met.
