Asymptomatic Shedding

Hey,

Sorry for my ignorance but I was wondering about spreading the HSV1 virus without an outbreak. I met this guy at a party and we had a couple of cokes while we talked. He then took both glasses and refilled the glasses with coke and accidently gave me his and he took mine. I drank out of it. I found out he has had cold sores but had not had one in 6 months. He didn't have one then. There isn't any chance of transmission of HSV1 to me is there? Thanks for any information.

I think the chances of transmission of HSV 1 in this way is extremely unlikely.
