Yeah, that is tough. When you think you could love someone else but felt restrained, it can cause some resentment. It also sounds like your boyfriend may be a little insecure. He probably feels that if you do love someone else, you will love him less. You can try to convince him that this is not true to try to ease his jealousy.
I wish you luck.
