Two events A and B are said to be "timelike separated" if they are connected by a worldline with an instantaneous velocity that is everywhere less than c. In other words, timelike worldlines connect all events experienced by observers moving subluminally. Conversely, spacelike separated events are those connected by a worldline for which v > c everywhere. Two events occurring simultaneously in your frame of reference are examples of spacelike separated events.
