So I had this bad thought about only wanting to be in a relationship with my boyfriend because other people are in relationships. But I love my boyfriend so much, he is the one I want to be with and marry and have for the rest of my life. I know I sometimes compare myself to others, but I know I want to be with my boyfriend forever. I’m just scared because of the bad thought, but I know thoughts don’t mean anything. I have to remind myself of that.

Your right. It is only a thought. You need to remind yourself of this.
It does sound as though you genuinely love your boyfriend and want to be with him because of that love.
I too suffer with intrusive thoughts so i understand how distressing they can be.
