Long story short. Last 2013 I caught overstaying in Denmark for 3 yrs I was sent back to my home country and thats 5 yrs ago now. And also now I want to apply for a Schengen visa again to visit my girlfriend in Netherlands. But I am afraid to get refusal for what happened 5 yrs ago. Is it really a big chance that i will be rejected to have a new visa? Please help.

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
You would have to convince the Dutch officials that this time, you won't overstay. Can you make a credible explanation why that won't happen? Saying "I wouldn't do that, honestly" won't be enough with your history.
- It might help if you had a stable and well-paid job that requires you to return. Something no sane person would give up, even for a girlfriend. Earning more than you could in the EU ...
- It might help if you were very young in 2013 and more mature now, but you are not much older now.
- If you have lived together with your girlfriend for a long time, you might have a chance for a dependent visa. Ask on Expatriates Stack Exchange. (But personally I doubt that will work.)
