Had problems at UK immigration before -- how can I avoid problems in the future? Do I have anything to worry about?

I am a US citizen with a "boyfriend" in the UK. I use the term boyfriend very, very loosely as we're not in any sort of committed relationship. The 1st time I went to visit him was in Feb. 2012. I made a mistake of lying about why I was there. I messed up. After a few moments of talking to the agent, I panicked and told her that I had lied, so she pulled me to secondary. After awhile of questioning, she let me in the country. I went to visit him again in May 2012. That time I received extra questioning but I wasnt put in secondary. i was let in. I want to go back and see him in Jan 2013 for 2 weeks and again in July 2013 as I already have set vacations during those months. I am worried that the UK won't let me in because I visit so much. How can I avoid being denied entry?
