How to Deal with Jealousy/How to Make One Jealous/I get jealous too easily..

Question
Hi,
Okay so me and my boyfriend are pretty serious. We've had some issues in the past where girls have texted him stuff about me and flirted with him which I think has caused me to be super jealous. I feel like I'm being too controlling and telling him not to talk to these girls but whenever he brings up something a girl did I just get angry and it makes me lash out at him which I don't mean to. But he's the same way. But I feel like I can't talk to any of my guy friends anymore since I've been dating him. And everytime I try and talk about it he says well I don't get to talk to girls so you can't talk to guys. But these guys are like my good friends or have girlfriends and the girls that talk to him are dirty or bad girls. And I don't want them around him. I feel too controlling. How can I help to control my jealousy or not get jealous. And how do I get him to not get so jealous?
Sincerely, A jealous girl ;)
