My boyfriend was sick, I kissed him & he's better but didn't have a sore throat and my throat in the front has been sore for longer than 2 weeks?
See your doctor: Since it has been going on for more than 2 weeks, yes, get to your doctor for further workup. Most viral sources of pharyngitis (sore throat) will resolve within 2 weeks.

Sores from kissing: Hello! Mono has an incubation period of 4-6 weeks so you kiss and get sick 1 and a half months later. This is unlikely to be MONO unless you kissed someone 6 weeks ago.
