By returning back to Holland you have defeated your own claim of fear of return. Most people with legitimate fears do not return and choose to file for asylum if proper grounds exist.
In your case if your intention is to move to the US permanently, is to get married either in Holland or in the alternative, petition for a fiancee visa. Good luck.
