Bart dumped Nora because he could only let a woman get so close--he felt claustrophobic--a woman hinting at commitment made him feel boxed in, not enough air to breath---being trapped in a relationship was a visceral thing for him, so he reacted automatically, lashing out, no thought involved--the hurt he might inflict meant nothing. Art on the other hand meant freedom, meant actualizing his real being--nothing else in life held any value or meaning. So he kept people, whether related by blood or women he'd slept with--at a distance. Too close could be fatal.
