I sometimes feel like you mention, damned if you do and damned if you don't.

taking things too slow has been a failure for me more often than not in the past

I don't believe this twee crap ( in most cases ) about how women want to be treated like charechters ina jane Austin novel

Nothing wrong with it. I went on like 10 dates before I held my future wife's hand. More than that before we kissed. Happily married for many years now.

you have incredible self control

If hand holding seems like it might scare him, go for touching his arm while talking. I've NEVER met a man who didn't seem to like that. It helps melt that invisible barrier and gives you an idea how receptive he is to hand holding.

He's interested in you, otherwise he wouldn't keep contact up with you.

If hand holding scares someone, are they really relationship material?

It doesn't scare me, but would bother me if I was nervous and my palms were sweaty. That would make me not initiate it for sure.
