A guy I've been seeing for seven weeks just told me he loved me. I do not feel the same way.

This was supposed to be a casual thing. He propositioned me online, I was in the right sort of mood to say yes. We slept together the first day we met. Since then we've hung out every week and things progressed from creepy once off internet hook-up to FWB to dating to a point where I was considering having an 'are we . . . ?' discussion with him.
This past weekend he said I love you. Under the influence of marijuana, I did not react well. I laughed, made a comically horrified face, and said, "No you don't! There's no way!" He said it several more times and it became clear that he was serious. Once I sobered up we had a slightly more serious discussion about it. He said that he didn't expect me to reciprocate his feelings, that he wasn't hurt by my horrified face, and that he loved me and that I was everything he wanted in his life. I giggled nervously.
I like him a lot. He's funny, weird, smart, and I enjoy spending time with him. He's also attractive and unbelievable in bed. It's possible that I could grow to care for him deeply. In like a few more months. I'd like to continue seeing him and let that happen gradually. However, this is waaaay too serious way too soon for me and is overwhelming/slightly terrifying. I have no idea how to progress from here or what I should even say to him. Plz help.
