So, I've been on two dates with a guy I met...he's really nice, but I'm not really feeling a spark between us. But anyways we went on our second date today, which wasn't too bad, but he kept wanting to hold my hand (I've never been in a relationship before, and I rarely date) and because I was too awkward, I kept making excuses so he wouldn't touch my hands or put his arm around me...
I joked about kicking him in the shin with my spike studded boots, and when we ate I burped out loud and just laughed.
I already know that I'm not an affectionate person, and he says that it's ok...but I know that it won't always be OK, he's a guy, and I won't even let him hold my hand.
I'm not sure if it's because I don't feel anything towards him, or if I'm just that unromantic...

Feels to me like you need to get comfortable. You need time to warm up to him and interaction to do so. The more he's around you, the easier that will be. But running from it or thinking it's a problem really isn't going to help, if anything it will only make you aware that it's happening. That CAN be a good thing, as long as you aren't your own worst critic. By being aware, you will start to understand why you feel the way you feel. Once you can understand that - you will know what to do. For example, above you stated it was "too awkward" which is a clue that you were uncomfortable. Hope that wasn't confusing?
