A friends 4 yr old kissed my lips. I do not have a herpes outbreak and have not had an out break in a really long time. Could it have spread?

In brief: Unlikely

Unless you have open/fresh lesions, the risk of spreading the virus is miniscule.
If you had/have active lesions, then thee is a possibility of transmission.
