And she probably should have been looking at the door and talking, knowing zombies are a foot. In fact, I believe that it's the callousness of the rest of the group members that cause her to lose her attention, not Ben's admission. She seems like a sweet person, and people threatening a teenager probably horrified her.
He put the group in bad situations, no doubt. But plenty of other characters did, from going to the St. Johns' farm without their own weapons to Lee entering an abandoned house with a little girl to Lilly sending everyone on dangerous runs to Clem running away from the group and safety because a stranger told her to. It just so happened the situations Ben put everyone in tended to be the ones somebody (liked) didn't escape from.
Yeah i dont mean to turn him into the devil nobody makes it through without bad moments, but throughout episode 3&4 until the point where you have the option to drop him, 5 deaths can be linked back to his mistakes. Its harsh to call him the main cause for more than 2 of them, but he's a factor in too many. That's clearly something the developers had in mind with this choice.
BFF's: Lee, Clem, Carley and Kenny
