How bad of an idea it is to attend a university class given by a lecturer I've secretly dated?

I'm an early thirties female student, back in school for a PhD. Last year I had a short affair with a guy I met socially through a friend. Said guy was in an open, long-distance relationship. It was mostly flirting, we didn't sleep together. We stopped seeing each other once his girlfriend moved here. He kept texting with me behind his girlfriend's back for a very long time. It took me more than six months to get over all of this. No one knows about this except our common friend.
Said guy is an assistant professor in my department, but within a different research group. He's giving a class I really want to attend, which relates directly to my current research project and would be useful in the future. If this guy would not have been lecturing, I would have definitely attended it.
