Dating a family members ex

She was serious about this guy she was dating and brought him to meet the family.
He was welcomed with open arms because of how happy he made my girlfriend. He was into her and was always willing to help out family members with the simplest things. When they broke up, it was because he portrayed himself to be something that he was not.
He was clearly a façade, and my girlfriend broke up with him.
If not, then it just simply means they're pathetic and I would hate to believe someone I dated was pathetic.
What's next: You decide to bring him to the latest family gathering. You realize that you two are great people but as a couple it just doesn't work out.
It's nothing serious like a holiday dinner; just an impromptu family gathering. As consenting adults, you decide that he goes his way and you go yours.
What are your thoughts on this and how should we go about going public with it?
He and I have been really good friends for 4 years and we want to dating your ex family member it to the next level.
Don't let this keep you from the one true person you are suppose to be with and that's someone out there. I went threw the same agony, for 10 years I was madly in love with Danny, and he was married, so was I, so two years after I was divorced, and a few months after his wife left him, we started to date and the gossip was out of control, but 4 years later he and I have become a happy family and the rude comments have faded into just your every day family members.
