Yes, there's an important difference between being fond and close, and being possessive and exclusive. It may be an issue both of him wanting to control things, and of feeling inadequate and scared to lose you. Couples counselling could help. Maybe in gentle discussion you can tell him your enjoyment of the friends and family you had before you met him, in no way diminishes your fondness for him - and you don't want to choose between him and them, as you can easily enjoy both - and indeed you'll feel the more fond of him for being able to share your happiness with him with other friends as well.
And its so understandable that you think of ending the affair - people who are too possesive risk losing it altogether ; people unwilling to share you with friends and family, usually lose uyou altogether, and deserve to do so unless they recognize the problem and are prepared to work on changing it
