What has worked out for me has been to mix them. My boyfriend is jealous and he's insecure about the guys I talk to or the guys I seldom see, like for a coffee or a tea. What I do is let my boyfriend ask me anything about them or my relation with the other guys. If he's still paranoid, then I'll arrange some meeting or hang out where they have the chance to interact and chat.
That's how he started getting along with my best guy friend. Then they spent so much time talking and laughing I was barely present haha. Now they get along nicely and don't miss a chance to meet when my best friend comes to the city. I have no problem at introducing friend to my boyfriend, so that he knows and they know that our relationship is fine.
I don't request to meeting his female friends, but he doesn't have any, and the one female friend he has kept for a long time (his ex), is really outside any of my fears because they don't interact mucho.2
