Hi there! i met a guy recently that is HIV pos as me, but he says that he is not taking any meds and he has kept healthy for 15 years... is that actually possible?

Yes, it's possible for a persons to live a long time with HIV and not be on treatment. These so-called long-term non-progressors are rare individuals, and usually have very low, if not undetectable HIV viral loads.
