I kissed someone and am afraid of contracting herpes. The person did not have any cold sores on his lips. What are the chances I was exposed?

In brief: Depends

You will not contact if that ' some one ' did not have herpes , infected one even if did not have sores some times will shed virus and there is a slight chance of getting infected.
Usually prolonged contacts are needed.
