My boyfriend is too protective?
What Guys Said 1
Quietly inform him immediately when it's occurring:
"Stop. You're embarrassing me."
Don't push him away, or make a scene. It's important that you keep him close after it occurs. Thus your body language will tell him; it's alright, it's not a big deal. (yet)
That'll bring it up for discussion if he feels the need to further understand why it bothers you.

Just tell him that you appreciate the fact that he is trying to be protective of you, but remind him that you are perfectly able to protect yourself if an unpleasant situation occurs to you. Tell him that you don't need to be constantly accompanied by him.
