This does not require much planning, except to make sure that you do the Friday Night Self-Care Hack #1. If you are going to do your grocery shopping with your spouse. If you have taken the time to get all dressed up and looking fine, your hubby will want to show you off.
A note of caution: he may be staring and thinking how good you look but may not say it to you. Don't take offense, because that could ruin your date night chances and lead to a big argument that is unnecessary. You could simply ask him, "How do I look?" or "Which shoes should I wear with these jeans?" You won't even have to ask him to take you out, he may just start driving toward a restaurant without even saying anything.
If all the effort doesn't work, then just make your needs known to your spouse. A simple statement could be, "Where do you want to take me now that I am all dressed up?" That may prompt him to dress up also. A spontaneous date night can help to fulfill your emotional need for care and love. Planned date nights are great too, but sometimes plans fall through, so it is better to always be ready for adventure.
