They don't need a "life history," keep it short and sweet. They want you to prove that you meet the stated requirements for the fiance(e) visa. Just follow the printed I-129F instructions, as quoted below:

"..5. What Documents Do You Need to Prove That You Can Legally Marry?

A. Provide copies of evidence that you and your fiancé(e) have personally met within the last two years; or if you have never met within the last two years, provide a detailed explanation and evidence of the extreme hardship or customary, cultural or social practices that have prohibited your meeting; and

Form I-129F Instructions (Rev. 11/23/10) Y Page 2

B. Provide original statements from you and your fiancé(e) whom you plan to marry within 90 days of his or her admission, and copies of any evidence you wish to submit to establish your mutual intent;..."

If you feel so inclined, you can include your "story" in an "Evolution of Relationship" letter that you can present later to the CO at the consulate/embassy interview.

Good luck on your visa journey.

:thumbs: I included an attached sheet with one paragraph that summed up the last 3 years. If you want, begin your statement with one sentence such as, " (Beneficiary's name) and I first met as kids in the same elementary school." Follow this with the relevant dates of meeting within the last 2 years and possibly short statements of how you spent your time. One or two paragraphs is all you need if you feel the provided space on the form is not enough. Then done. :yes:

The size of the box provided on the form indicates how long they expect your response to be. A simple "We met as kids in elementary school, have had various meetings since. The latest meeting was in Location from Date to Date." Back those dates up with evidence and you're good to go.
