Herpes Testing and the Calendar Confusion

The guy I am dating told me on June 2, 2012 that he is HSV1 and 2 (2 weeks after we met).  We had not had any sexual contact.  I did not run nor commit. On July 11, 2012 I touched his penis (which I learned on July 12, 2012, he had, had an outbreak on the 11th).  I did french kiss him.  On July 30, 2012 he performed oral sex on me. On August 1, 2012 I had blood work for HSV, IgM I/II combination.  Results: high, 1.59.
I will be having the test redone, and want to know what test is recommended...very confused about IgM or IgG?  Also regarding the incubation period and when I should have or re-do the tests.  I read about false positives, especially if you had chicken pox as a kid which I did.  I have no outbreaks.  
I was tested in May 2011, negative.  And have not had intercourse with anyone.
Confused (that is an understatement)...about even kissing!  What can I do, what shouldn't I do???  Rather not get this...do I walk away (it is early enough in the relationship to do that).  I love myself, not him...at least not yet.
