It's normal to lose friends when you are dating.
So much time is spent between the lovers that there isn't much time left for others. If you are missing friends then make time for them and explain it to your BF.
Regarding the ex that you keep thinking about... it is normal for a guy to resent attention being paid to an ex even if it is just friendship. But normal doesn't make it right. Keep after your BF until he feels comfortable with the idea of your seeing your ex.
Good luck! George
