Possible HIV concern. Please help. I’m worried.

Hi, I recently met with a guy who is HIV positive, I found this out after. His penis was never hard. He licked my anus then I felt him briefly wipe his penis tip on my anus, there could have been pre cum. He then briefly tried to insert his finger into my anus. Then did some more licking of my anus. Before any of this happening, sometime there’s blood when I wipe after going to the bathroom so there could be small cuts from hemorrhoids or something. He then spit on his hand and gave me a hand job. What are the chances of me getting HIV?

So, you had zero risk.  Even with your added details.  People do not get HIV from having their anus licked or frottage.  The risks are very clear and include unprotected, penetrating vaginal or anal intercourse or sharing IV drug needles.  Air and saliva inactivate the virus.  You need NOT worry about HIV from what you describe but I hope the other person gives up meth for his own health.  You had zero risk.

Your situation involves personal contact with an object in air  (mouth, lips,  fingers, penis etc. which is not a risk for hiv) but your description indicates there was no penetration. No hiv worries, because you can't get hiv from personal contact except unprotected penetrating vaginal or anal, neither of which you did and you didn't share hollow needles to inject with which is the only other way to acquire hiv. Analysis of large numbers of infected people over the 40 years of hiv history has proven that people don't get hiv in the way you are worried is a risk.
HIV is a fragile virus in air or saliva and is effectively instantly dead in either air or saliva so the worst that could happen is dead virus rubbed you, and obviously anything which is dead cannot live again so you are good. Blood and cuts would not be relevant in your situation since the hiv has become effectively dead, so you don't have to worry about them to be sure that you are safe.
There is no reason for a person to test when they are safe. The advice took into consideration that the other person might be positive, so move on and enjoy life instead of thinking about this non-event. Next time you wonder if you had a risk, ask yourself if you did any of the 3, then after you say "Nope, I didn't" then it's time to move on back to your happy life.

The person who I had contact with had very poor dental health (meth user) so his mouth could have contained blood while he was licking my anus. The finger he inserted into my anus could have had pre cum on it, he was masterbating the whole time. Still any risk?
