Doesn't matter as long as you met in person within the last 2 years of the filing of the petition. If you met more than once, pick one that you have the most backup information/proof of or list them all.

Talking through MSN or phone calls is useful for 'front loading' the petition with evidence of an ongoing relationship, and can help with some of the tougher consulates, but they don't prove you've met in person. They actually prove the opposite. If you're dealing with a high fraud consulate, and you want to take advantage of question 18 on the I-129F to add some additional evidence for the consulate stage, then by all means include anything that will help, but don't count on this as part of what is actually needed to answer question 18. Don't add that other stuff until you've included sufficient evidence of actually having met face-to-face; boarding passes, visa stamps, hotel receipts, any 3rd party document with both names on it (receipts, tickets, etc), and photos. Once you've satisfied the basic requirements of proving you've actually physically met each other, then feel free to add any additional evidence that will help at the consulate stage.

For the London Embassy (which I assume is the OP's interview location), none of that extra evidence will likely be needed. Just provide evidence that proves you've met.
