tongue kissed a guy i met online

I kissed a guy for about 5 mins a few days ago. Not sure if he had any sores or anything like that. I think I might've had a small one inside of my mouth afterwards. I do have have herpes 1.........did I put myself at risk?

has anyone ever caught hiv by kissing?

thanks for your help.
