You need far more help that I can give you.
True love includes infinite trust in your loved one. You don't trust your boyfriend therefor you don't love him. That sounds harsh, but it is really true. Think about how much you love your boyfriend and how much you trust him.
You are thinking about yourself too much in your worries.
Jealousy is a very difficult emotion to deal with and requires a lot of self-esteeem and strength to fight it off. Think of jealousy itself as an enemy and fight it with all you have.
It's ok to talk about it with your boyfriend so long as your discussion is loving and not an argument or an accusation.

But, as I said, you need more help, and yes that means a psychologist. There is nothing threatening about a psychologist. They are trained and have experience with all kinds of human emotional problems.
