Can you catch HIV if you kiss someone?

You can’t get HIV if you kiss someone, unless there is blood! Saliva, vomit & urine are not risky unless visible blood is present! Any Suggestions here?

    HIV is a blood borne pathogen, that means it is in the blood!The HIV virus can be present in saliva! For someone to catch it, you must have two things! A source of the infection,(blood) and a portal of entry (an opening for it to enter you)! If the one you are kissing has HIV, and has blood present, and lets say you recently flossed your teeth, and you may have some areas in your mouth that could be open from flossing, you are at risk! It is possible that the virus could enter your bloodstream through this area! It could be possible, but not likely! Please check the following link for the Center for Disease Control! Please understand that it is not likely, but personally I would not like to risk that! There are other ways of showing affection, that maintains my safety!
