I am from England and I met a girl from the USA online.
This summer, I went to visit her for two weeks, and on arrival was not let through the main barrier, and instead had to go through to another room (which I'm assuming is secondary inspection) and asked more questions, where I was eventually let though, and had an amazing two weeks before flying home.
We would both like for me to go again next summer, ideally for a longer time (the two months she is on summer break from college), however I am very worried about having problems in immigration again.
I'm just asking what the likelihood of there being a problem is, and what I can do to make things go as smoothly as possible.
It seems like the biggest worry to them is that I would stay - which I have no intention to do whatsoever. The thing I am worried about is I will just have finished uni, so have no uni to go back to, and unless I'm very lucky I won't have an immediate job to go back to, they will think I don't have much tying me to the UK. I just want to make use of the fact of I can go there for a few months before I find work and have a few weeks holiday.
So, do I have much to worry about, or was my experience the first time unusual?
