I have HSV2 and have been dating someone without it. We haven't been sexual but have kissed a lot. Is there any risk in kissing, like if I shed the virus onto my hands or face or something?
Highly unlikely...I was in a relationship with someone for 6 months and he did not get hsv2. I am on the antivirus so not sure if this helped? Be honest with her and tell her. I am now in my second relationship with a guy who does not have it and after 3 weeks I told him. I worried that he may not accept it but surprisingly he says he can work with it. This does put us in an awkward position but sometimes love is worth it.

Highly unlikely. Especially the hand scenario. But I would still be cautious of it.
