Hi Not know his status and from what you described you are not infected. HIV transmission does not happen with kissing or other day to day activities. There has to be a direct exchange of body fluid that carries HIV, blood, semen, vaginal fluid and breast milk.
Take a breath, be well and stay safe, Shannon
