Being shy isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it can impact our ability to communicate with others. Go slow, don't just jump into things. Do something like this:
Day 1: Say hi to a stranger (or smile and nod)
Day 2: Say hi to 2 strangers
Day 10: Say hi to a person and start a small conversation (can be something simple like, "Hey, I love your shirt, where'd you get it?" That way you can just let them talk
Day 11: 2 strangers...
We gain more confidence each time we do something and become more familiar with it, so go slow and work your way up

You gotta accept yourself for who you are. Let your boyfriend go to those gatherings by himself. If you are comfortable to go then go. If not, don't hold him back. Only let him stay if he wants to stay but give him the option to go. Extroverts love to talk and be around people and if you deprive him of that then it's like depriving a flame of oxygen.
