A young single woman who went viral on TikTok after trying to find a husband at a Bunnings Warehouse says she won’t give up on her unusual quest for love.
Leesh Cunningham, 26, who lives on the Central Coast of New South Wales, has provided the social media platform with a two-part video in which she tried her luck trying to find a husband at the hardware store.
In the funny clips she can be seen wandering through every aisle and even asking a Bunnings employee if there are any men in stock.
Although she had no luck finding a partner, Ms. Cunningham, who works as the branch manager for a car rental company, was inundated with Instagram messages from some very interested fans.

Although Ms. Cunningham was unlucky to find a partner, she was inundated with messages from some very interested fans
“My DMs (direct messages on Instagram) are absolutely blown up,” she told Daily Mail Australia.
“Those who have all the trust are like 50-year-old men, so still no real prospect, but you never know.”
Some of these messages even featured some worthy x-rated comments from Australian men who were impressed with their efforts to find a partner.
‘Your bunnings videos are funny. If you want to do one with a happy ending (you’ve found your Christmas wish) I would be delighted and honored to play the part, ”said one bachelor.
“Might I suggest trying Miter 10 instead. I think you will find that they take care of you and your needs independently. They will help you find what you need with a smile on your face and I am sure you will be satisfied with the service you receive, ”said another.
During Ms. Cunningham’s TikToks, she filmed herself checking every aisle in the department store in hopes of finding her only true love
During Ms. Cunningham’s TikToks, she filmed herself checking every aisle in the department store in hopes of finding her only true love.
With no immediate luck, she turned to a saleswoman for help.
“I’m just looking for a husband and I’ve found out that you have her here,” she says to a staff member.
“They fly off the shelf, if we have any, they are in the back corner on the left,” answered the clerk.
Mrs. Cunningham ran to the back corner to find herself alone again.
She was even seen once holding up flyers with a series of phone numbers.
A man who did not list her own number wrote a message to Mrs. Cunningham to inform her that he had been inundated with text after she unwittingly listed his phone number.
The videos have been viewed more than 180,000 times and the 26-year-old was blown away with the support she received.
Mrs. Cunningham had visited the store twice, but both times had gone without a husband
“What you see is what you get, I’m not ashamed,” she laughed.
‘I saw an opportunity and thought this might be my way on TikTok to steal the single, so I figured what better way than a male-dominated hardware store.
“Dating apps only attract one guy and I’m not about that.”
She said she was amazed at how helpful everyone on social media had been, and many suggested she try gas stations or other hardware stores.
“I think this will be my next series, where I answer the comments and do what they say,” said Ms. Cunningham.
After sharing the clips, several others offered her advice on dating.
“I have to be there between 6 am and 8 am and between 5 pm and 9 pm, then the trades will get their supplies,” commented one.
“So my friends and I go to Bunnings and just lift the hood of our car and just stand against the car … thank us later,” wrote another.
“Don’t give up, I got my husband from there, he’s fine,” said one.
“You have to be between 5am and 6:30 am 7-11am,” someone suggested.
“To be honest, early morning servos are where the trades take place. Met my partner there, ”commented one.
“You have to go to Miter 10, not Bunnings,” one said.
The videos have been viewed more than 180,000 times and many other single women gave her some dating advice
