Why be in a hurry? Flat out tell the girls that you are not in a hurry to jump into a relationship! This will get rid of the vast majority of scammers. Heck, I'd put that statement right in your profile! In the end, it won't scare off the good girls because they'll be doing their due dilligence on you as well.
The only girls that are in a big hurry are desperate and have nothing to lose.
Jesus, 3 years?!? What the hell did you talk about for all that time? How did you keep her interested? How did you keep the feeling of "new romance" going for all that time? Personally I'd be happy to marry the right girl as soon as possible just so I could be sure to lock in the deal before I said/did something to f**k it up and lose her.
