Does he love me?

We have been friends for about a year now. And there is not a single day that we don't talk. We text, we call. We always talk and flirt with each other. He says that he loves me sometimes but I don't really understand if he loves me more than friends or he loves me just as friends. I really really like him for a while now but too scared to tell him cause I don't wanna lose him. We have a special connection. But I've been bottling up my emotions and it effects me in a horrible way. What do you think about it? Does he love me and what should I do?
