No way: Unfortunately there is no other way without asking them. But over 80% of the human population has oral herpes- most get it from their parents or friends from sharing things such as spoons, cans of soda, etc.

No way to know: Many folks have oral herpes without knowing. The only way for you to be sure is to ask.
