I assume that you are using the word “boyfriend” loosely. There is no way in Hades that you can be dating somebody seriously for that long and never meet his friends. It should be an impossibility. At some point during the course of ANY relationship, you go to a party or get together at somebody’s home, etc. That usually happens within the first six months if the guy’s really feeling you.
So to have gone four years without meeting his friends? I hate to tell you, but I’m not sure that you’re his girlfriend. You might have sex and spend some quality time, but I’m guessing that’s about as far as it goes.
I’m guessing if you haven’t met his friends, you have yet to meet his parents either, right? Being exceptionally good looking might be why he’s keeping you around and perhaps you do that thing with your tongue or something that he really enjoys. But any man who is genuinely interested in your and your life and a commitment with you would bring you around his friends so that they can give him the hi-five on doing such a good job. As a man, your friends are vital to your growth. You want to make sure that your girlfriend gets along with your boys. It’s just one of those things that is.
So, he doesn’t bring you around his friends because you’re not his girlfriend. Perhaps he’s bringing somebody else around them and you should probably be trying to find out, from him, why you haven’t met the friends. After four years, anything short of “they all died on a plane crash a few years ago” is not a legit excuse.
