Letting yourself re-experience and reminisce about all the things that went wrong previously isnt at all helpful, as I'm sure you've discovered. Learn from what went wrong, so as to be better able to avoid it happening again, and move on.
Its not compulsory to "fall" for guys before you know enough about them to know whether they're free and unattached. Take your time, dont give your heart away so darn easily. And in the present case, you knew him for a long time and KNEW he was already attached - so you had no need at all to get so emotionally involved in what you knew was a doomed relationship.
You know he keeps you secret from his family - why on earth then introduce him to your own family ? He does not intend to remain with you long-term, and marriage is no-where on his mind.
When you decide to end things with him, just tell him simply and firmly in a public place ( where he cant cause a scene ) and do NOT get into discussion with him or allow him to talk you out of it. It sounds as though he finds you convenient to pass the time with while the girl he will mary isn't in town.
let go, move on. Don't accept any calls from him and change your number if you can ; delete his number. Get busy with hobbies, work, other friends.
