The problem is I'm now terrified of having sex again in case I become +ve , as a results I'm not looking forward meeting him for the holidays.I know that one can use condoms for protection but everytime I think about sex I just get so nervous and scared.

I think socks makes a lot of sense here. And I think you are responding not simply to a concern about AIDS, but to feeling unready oto make a sexual committment at this stage, and before marriage. Be empowered to say no, if that is how you feel. If he doesn't respect that, he isn't worth loving.
