Default Can anyone help with CBP problem?

If the CBP denied me entry to the united states from canada, on grounds that they felt I was planning to go as an immigrant and "did not have strong enough ties to canada to convince them I'd return to the country", can I still travel to the USA in a few months? I had a one way ticket, did that matter? Is there any advice at all you guys can offer? I'll provide more information if needed and asked for. Also, they didnt say I was banned or flagged or anything. I was "granted the opportunity to withdrawl my application to enter" the united states. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you all in advance.
Also I'm a canadian citizen.
The exact quote the CBP officer said as to when I could enter was "When you can provide you have strong ties to canada and indeed will return after your visitation period is up."

As to why I was denied it was because I quit my job and was planning on visiting my girlfriend for an extended time of 6 months. Which is the allowed time of a canadian citizen to visit the US.

Yes, a round ticket is a good first step.

Do you have a job? Did they ask you what you were going to do on your trip and if so how did you answer?

Ah yes, that you quit your job to go see your girlfriend without a return ticket is definitely the problem. Having a job to return to is the tie to Canada most people would have. What would you do for money?
