Most Helpful Girl
I think he's definitely developed feelings for you as you did for him, you guys don't want other people knowing your relationship/fwb because it could potentially cause drama, but at the end of the day, if you two connect and want a relationship, you can't let other people decide that for you, I would pick my happiness over someones awkwardness. You guys are adults, there is no rule for dating especially if they broke up years ago, everyone has an ex, just so happens his is your friend, and apart of the friend group. If you guys have chemistry it wouldn't be hard to see in a group. He definitely missed you, I find that when people we like/love go away, we miss them more because we can't just go and see them like we would if they were just at home or in the same city etc.
