Do girls like affectionate guys? I am like abnormally affectionate for a guy I think? Like I love all of the hand holding, sweet messages, hair playing, couch cuddling, blanket sharing, little jokes, saying "I love you", compliments, things like that. Both giving and receiving affection, it is a really important thing to me. I'm not talking like a constant stream of it, but little bits built in throughout the week.
My last girlfriend was not very affectionate at all and I felt like I wasn't really wanted and that my affection was not appreciated so it caused conflict.
Like I said, it is very important to me, but is this something that I need to work on trying to change about me?

Some girls do and some girls don't. I am a girl who loves affectionate guys. The guy I am in a relationship with now is just like you. However, one of my girl friends is quite the opposite. She finds it annoying when guys are extremely affectionate.
Don't change anything about you. Embrace the fact that you know this about yourself and just look for the right girl.
A good start is to look for someone with a compatible zodiac sign. I am a Cancer (generally caring and compassionate) and my boyfriend is a Taurus (generally affectionate and stubborn), whereas my girlfriend is a Sagittarius (generally independent and fair-minded).1

Only later once you've establish relationship with them. Showing affection too early makes you appear easy. Women want what they can't have.
