“I’ll take care of you”?

My car broke down and I phoned my casual (?) boyfriend who came to pick me up and took me to his house. I know I was very shook up and concerned about the car, and I went to bed early. I woke up to him leaning over me and putting the duvet right. He said: “I’m tucking you in like I do my kids”. A while later I woke up again as he was leaning over me, kissing my forehead and whispering: “I’ll take care of you”. Yet in our 10 months together he never said I love you, so I don’t think he does. How should I interpret his actions and behavior?
