It's easy: "Mom, meet Sock. Sock, this is my mom."

I have a great boyfriend who treats me really well, but we hardly ever hang out with his friends, except sometimes at parties. And even though he agrees that we're for (very) serious, he hasn't even mentioned the idea of introducing me to his parents. I have told him that I'm upset about the friend stuff.

We've been together for several months. I'm a lady in my thirties, so I'm ready to Get Serious And Settle Down, which I have told him. Even if I weren't the impatient type, I can feel the clock ticking, and I don't have time for these games.
Important context: he was with someone else for a long time before they broke up. (Which was before he and I got together, fwiw.) They have all the same friends. I've never met her but she has said she doesn't feel comfortable with me hanging around her crowd, one of whom gave me the silent treatment at a party. He says he doesn't know how to navigate the situation. I sympathize, a lot, but it still sucks for me.
I think he's the cat's pajamas. I could dial things back in our relationship and start seeing other people, but my heart wouldn't be in it. What should I do? I want be a bigger part of his life.
