Form 48R, Fiance or not?

I have a friend overseas that I have been corresponding with and I am considering to marry, but we haven't met yet. So I need to apply for a tourist visa for her to come to me, and fill in form 48R. Is it better for getting it approved to state that I am a fiance on the form, or is it better to just state that I am a friend?

One other thing, is it more likely to succeed if you ask for a shorter visa? If you ask for a longer visa, could they approve it but issue a shorter visa? The longer the visa is, the harder it is to make a plausible story about returning to a job or something.

Yes you are correct in your thinking. You should also provide a letter of support - financial, accomodation etc.
Immigration are concerned about how they will fund themselves while here and also that they will return to their home country and also that they are a "genuine" tourist.

A 3 month application is most likely to succeed if some of the other factors are a little weak.
