Q: Immigration question about visiting USA

I hold a B2 visitor visa and traveled to the US in August. after a lengthy secondary questioning ( about my employment status, reason for visiting, reason for needing six months and details of my girlfriend, subsequently contact was made to her to confirm my story) After which I was granted entry of six months, which I didn't complete since I departed the US two months later October. I would like to return to the US to suprise my girlfriend for our anniversary in February. Can I be eligible for entry into the USA if I want to suprise my girlfriend without her knowledge when I convey that to a CBP officer? Or would the CBP officer require my girlfriend to have knowledge of my visit?

A: Do you know why there was a lengthy questioning last time? You may have to overcome the officer’s assumption that you are planning to possibly get married and remain in the US after this entry. It is impossible to advise without knowing the details of the last questioning.
