UK Tourist Visa with Sponsor

Hi everyone, I would like to share my Tourist Visa Application with Sponsor.

As we all know that Long Distance Relationship (LDR) is so hard, that feeling of missing someone out of your reach. Even you talk to each other every single day, chatting, texting, video calling but still not enough. We met each other thru online. He went to Philippines after two months of knowing each other thru online, that's our first met in person. Everything went smoothly, he stayed for two weeks in the Philippines of-course we went on Vacation. After two weeks he go back to UK and we're back to LDR again. We missed each other everyday of our lives. After five months he went back to Philippines again and he only had one week vacation, before he go back to UK  he proposed to me and I said yes and met my parents and relatives. 

He told me to apply for a Marriage Visitor Visa but it was denied.(I will do another post about it.) After refusal of that Visa application, we decided to try the Tourist Visa, and luckily it was approved. It was 6 months multiple entry visa.

I have my savings but we just want to make sure that everything will be okay and hoping for an approved visa so he state his support for my visa application.
