Nervous about CBP - Travelling on B2 to meet LD boyfriend

I am a citizen of a 3rd world Caribbean country where I work as a high school teacher with the government. I am also a masters student.

I visited the USA for vacation towards the end of May. I initially planned to return home towards the end of July. That’s when I booked my return ticket for.

However, I met my boyfriend (who is a US citizen) while in the US towards the end of June. We really hit it off and so I missed my return flight and stayed until the first week in September. I had to leave at that time to resume my work and school duties. I left before work and school resumed. Consequently, I ended up spending 3 months and a couple days in US.

As a teacher, I am privileged to get many holidays/school breaks. I now want to visit my boyfriend in December for about 9 days. I would reserve and stay at a hotel or Airbnb for the duration of the visit. That’s exactly what I plan to tell, and if necessary, show proof to CBP.

I am worried absolutely sick that I may be refused entry by CBP because I previously stayed 3 months despite initially planning to spend 2 months. My job affords me long paid holidays as a teacher - that’s genuinely why I was able to stay. I did not engage in any work or illegal activities. I simply vacationed and visited different places with my new boyfriend.

I GENUINELY do not plan to and will not live in the USA. Nor will I get married - we are simply dating and still getting to know each other. I have excellent job benefits as a permanent civil servant & completing my masters is my priority. I can easily provide proof of my work, student and financial status.

Am I overthinking or is my chance of refusal very high? Please advise.

NVC Case FE Review note

Hi everyone, my family and I are under the F3 category and we just received a notice from NVC that our documents have been approved and that we are Documentarily Qualified. My only concern is this message that we received today in addition to the acceptance: ​ " [Name of petitioner] does not meet the minimum income requirement to sponsor the intending immigrants for this case. The consular officer will make a decision regarding this requirement at the time of the interview. For more information, please visit . To avoid delays, an additional Affidavit of Support Form I-864 for a joint sponsor may be submitted." ​ We already have a petitioner and a household sponsor (the household sponsor's income is above the required level), but still unsure why we received this. Has anyone else received this message? All of our documents say "Approved" on NVC. Does this mean we have to find another sponsor? Can we show the consular officer our
