Some with herpes kissed me on my forhead will I get it

Im very worried . A lady I know with herpes kissed me three times on the forhead and I dont know if she had a cold sore I couldn't see but I touched the kiss and accidentally rubbed my eyes . What are my chances of getting herpes ?

Highly unlikely.  The nasal cavity, lips and eyes are what are typically involved in facial herpes (a VERY common virus that even children often get). Even touching a spot that was kissed and then your eyes.  That's really an unlikely scenario.  This really doesn't sound like something I'd be concerned about.
