Concerned about interview with red flags..

 Just wanted a little insight on my situation. I had b1/b2 visa through which I had multiple visits to my extended family but always came back before time never overstayed. While on my last visit back in early 2016 When I tried to enter CBP officer went through my phone and suspected that I was working and spending too much time there he gave me option to withdraw my entry and sent me back on a plane.. while I was there my f1 for my masters was already in process and I tried to enter through b1/b2 ( my mistake) and this happened. When I came back I applied for my f1 but it was denied for obvious reasons. Now  in early 2017 I started talking to my now fiancé and he came to my home country to visit me three times and got engaged  and we applied for a k1 this year. We are same religion, same age , no previous marriages and  have three trips of him visiting me and have a bunch of proof. But with my previous attempts I am a bit concerned of it being a red flag and can cause denial at the interview?


what can we do to make the CO see our genuine intent to get married and being together.. ?
