I think it is mainly due to the fact that there really aren't tourist visas in Saudi Arabia (only for tour groups, not for individual travellers).

There are business visas, but you need an invite from a Saudi company.

Also, not sure if it makes much difference, but if you were married to your boyfriend, that might make things slightly easier (though he would have months of paperwork to fill out to get wife/family to Saudi Arabia)

Under Saudi law - single women aren't issued visas unless they can prove . . . a) they have a close relative living there (boyfriends don't count as close relative as they don't count in most countries Chuck ! ) b) they are a business person with specific business in the Kingdom or c) they have a job offer with a company who has sponsored them to go . . or d) they are part of an organised travel group.

Its a bit like trying to get a visa for the US for most citizens of the Eastern world. ie more chance of trying to plait sawdust ! But then they are entitled to protect their country as Saudi Arabia is to protect theirs.
