Nobody is required to be another person's therapy.

It does not make Keith heartless or a bad person to opt out of a relationship or person with issues very early on. It's not up to him to be someone else's rehabilitation for their issues, as though he wasn't already dealing with his own issues at the time. He didn't make his divorce be the point of some new woman to repair, he's not a bad person for opting out of a more complex relationship than he wanted. That one sexual experience was enough for him to know this wasn't right, and her opening up that Pandora's box of rape issues was not for him. And that's ok. I think this was a very good example of knowing your boundaries and living within them.
