You need to become very educated yourself on it so you can answer questions that may come up, and learn what measures that you can take to reduce the risk to him. It is up to him though to choose to take whatever risks with what you too might do. Be sure that you can trust him with the information, as often people so young don't bother to really know each other before getting intimate.

Do it in a place where, if he needs to, he's able to leave the situation. Mrhonest is right as well, be as informed as possible. Print out some information and heck, send him here if he has questions. Many of us, myself included, would love to talk to him about any qualms he may have.

Besides, you'll feel way better once you've said something to him, even though you may be really nervous about doing so.

      You’re on the right track for sure. Did you get a swab of the lesions? Have you had an IgG blood retest for HSV?

      I would like to hear from those who have genital hsv 1... I’m thinking that I have type 1 because the guy I believe gave it to me had cold sores.. or is this assumption wrong? What’s the chances of having type 2 from his cold sores?

      I am very sorry that you are feeling the way you do at this time.  I went through the full range of feelings and emotions you describe for more than 10X as long as you have (that's right over 30 years) .  I have no idea if what I am going to tell you will be of benefit but I have no doubt what soever that HSV2 has been eliminated from my life.    This happened several months ago.  How?  Through SCALAR ENERGY.  It is still hard for me believe at times that I am now free of it, but it's true. If you want to know more you should go to the website and read it all.  creativestrength.us  I have absolutely no connection to the good people at this site other than I am now totally well from the treatment (not expensive) and am telling my story in the hopes that the same will happen to them.
