Just be open and honest with him. I always recommend approaching it from the standpoint of it's a talk we should always be having with all our partners. talk about std's they've had, talk about testing, talk about condom use and talk about birth control too. Odds are he's never been tested for herpes and he very well might never have been tested for std's. During your talk, talk about what testing you've had and what you know you have. be prepared to give some basic info about what type of herpes you have, the risks of transmission from it as well as what steps you are willing to take to reduce transmission to them.
