A couple of days ago, I realised he hasn't been wanting to kiss me or anything and I have a feeling he is using me for popularity. All my friends say this and also my guy best friends. WHAT THE HELL SHOULD I DO? Strangely, I still like this boy so much, I don't know if I'm going to break up with him or what? What is even going through his thick skull? He is always so sweet to me by holding me and holding my hand, hugging me always, etc, why and how would he do this to me? WHAT SHOULD I DO ABOUT IT?

Since your boyfriend and your friends have conflicting statements, there are 2 possible realities:
1. He is saying you because his feelings are genuine, and your friends are either lying or mistaken.
2. Your friends are right, and he's just playing you.
I don't know how you can figure out who is right here.
You could say that because multiple people corroborated what he said to them, then that is the more likely scenario; that he's dating you for popularity.
The problem is, if he was honest with you, and you don't believe him, that could damage your relationship, and you may have regrets about it in the future. On the other hand, if he's just using you, that's also a problem.
Based on what you said, if I were in your shoes, I would give him the benefit if the doubt, but have a serious discussion with him about that. You should try to investigate what is going on.
Remember, you're dating a teenage boy. You are more likely more mature than he is, and as a young woman, society encourages you to be in touch with your feelings. For us guys, a lot if the time we have a difficult time expressing ourselves especially during our teenage years.
Just be patient, and try to work things out with him. If you know beings a reasonable don't that he's using you, just end it. More importantly, know when to quit, and when you do, know how to quit.
