Ever since I can remember I've always got along with boys over girls; although I'm generally agreeable and I get along with both genders just fine, girls don't really seek friendship with me, while boys have always been perfectly fine with just hanging out or coming over to my house and sitting in my living room playing video games together.
Me and my boyfriend have known each other for 3 years now; he's also my first boyfriend and we've gotten over every relationship hurdle thus far, except for this one -- all of my friends are guys, and because of this I never hang out with anyone anymore.
It's not like he tells me that I CAN'T hang out with them, but I can tell deep down he doesn't want me to. I'm a considerate person (not just of him, but of all people I associate myself with) and I don't want to make him feel like he's less important to me or that I might cheat on him, but it's rather difficult not being around anyone socially.
To give some more details I'm in college and he's going into the military and starting basic training soon. He works 6 days out of the week while I work 3-4 and I live 2 cities away from him but we're both military brats and we're used to distance. I'm rather introverted, but I still need to socialize occasionally, and lately the only way I can fill up on that is by going to dinner with my mom and her coworkers, and mentally translating their conversations into English is draining. I'm really at a loss as to what to do to get my fill of personal interaction without hurting my boyfriend's feelings.

This is something that you really need to discuss with your boyfriend. Explain your feelings about this situation to him the same way you've done so here on GAG. Honestly, simply, calmly, and rationally. He should be able to understand where you're coming from. A good compromise would be if you hang out with your guy friends in groups (as opposed to being isolated with only one or two of them).0
