how long can you go before showing symptoms of herpes?

Could it be possible that my boyfriend contracted herpes 4 years ago and never knew until now?  We both have symptoms of herpes presently and began showing signs of it at the exact same time.  We have only ever had sex with each other but 4 years ago he had a gf that performed oral sex on him.  So is it possible that he contracted herpes then and never knew it?  Does it make sense that we are both showing signs of herpes at the same time?  Could it be anything else?

Studies have shown time and time again that the vast majority of folks who have genital herpes, have no idea until tested.    

How were you both diagnosed as having herpes? What testing was done?
