oh no no no no. Don't make it the other way around:
He pays her money so he can hang out with her, because he became complacent of this whole situation.
If he asks her out and she rejects him (as she probably would) then it's over, He cannot possibly rent her again after that: > So if you don't want to go out with my then I'll simply pay you many so you will have to.
Sure he can ask her multiple times until she gives in, but he is to content with what he has already to go that route.
That's why probably only her retiring from being a rental can change anything, which is dumb, but understandable.
