Leesh Cunningham, from New South Wales went viral on Tik Tok last week after ditching dating apps to find a man at Bunnings Warehouse
A desperate single who went searching for a husband at Bunnings has been offered a free year of Tinder Gold to help her find the perfect match.
Leesh Cunningham, who lives on the New South Wales Central Coast, went viral on TikTok after ditching dating apps to find a man at the hardware store.
Ms Cunningham’s social media pages have exploded with messages since her TikTok video made the news.
Men from as far away as California have reached out, while others ‘weirdos’ or ‘over-confident 50+ year olds’ have planted messages in her direct messages.
To make her efforts worthwhile, Tinder has now offered its services help Ms Cunningham bag a new suitor.
The dating app is trying to get her back online by giving her a free year of Tinder Gold, which usually costs $120 for an annual subscription.

Tinder’s top tips:
• Channel your inner plant daddy: hang by the monsteras or get busy with some fiddle leaf figs in your profile pic – a dude who can keep one of these green bois alive is hot property.
• Get ya snags out. Show your commitment to the sausage (or the bread, or the sauce): stand proud with one of those bangers in your profile pic, or just lurk around the line.
• Literally work there: is there a better way to show your loyalty to the Warehouse than donning the sacred apron and manning the checkout?
• It’s a Match? Make it a date! Think about it – Bunnings is actually the perfect place for a date: free food, indoor and outdoor activities, lots of space and plenty of conversations starters.
Tinder is also trying to help single men vying for Ms Cunningham’s heart.
‘We thought we’d do Australia’s men a favour and have put together a few pointers on the perfect profile for lads out there keen to catch Leesh’s eye,’ they wrote.
‘Whether it’s in the stack right here in Tinder or in the hallowed aisles between the paint and the garden hoses.’
Tinder recommended becoming a ‘plant daddy’ and using a profile picture on the app with Bunnings’ famous sausage on bread.
The app also suggested applying for a job at Bunnings Warehouse.
Ms Cunningham rose to fame after sharing a two-part video to TikTok trying her luck at finding a husband in the popular department store.
In the hilarious clips she is seen wandering through each aisle and even asking a Bunnings employee if they had any men left in stock.
‘So I’ve given up on Tinder and online dating and I’ve gone for a more traditional approach… I’ve come to Bunnings to find a husband,’ she said.
After trying each aisle she eventually gives up adding she ‘must have picked a bad time of day’.

Tinder says there are plenty of eligible men on the app who are just as enamoured with Bunnings as Leesh is (pictured the dating app profile of one such man)
Ms Cunningham had visited the department store on two separate occasions but both times left without a man
Ms Cunningham was at it again a few days later, this time standing in the aisles with flyers listing a series of phone numbers.
Sitting on a display toilet in the department store, the young woman tried to find a plumber.
With no immediate luck she turned to a shop assistant for help.
‘I’m just looking for a husband and was told you guys had them here,’ she is seen saying to a staff member.
‘They’re flying off the shelf, if we have any they’ll be in the back corner on the left,’ the employee replied.
The videos have garnered more than 180,000 views with many other single women giving her some dating advice

‘Got to be there between 6-8am and 5-9pm, that’s when the tradies get their supplies,’ one commented.
‘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,’ another wrote.
‘Don’t give up, I got my man from there, he’s alright,’ said one.
‘You need to be at 7/11 between 5am and 6.30am,’ someone suggested.
‘Honestly servos in the early morning are where the tradies are at. Met my partner there,’ one commented.
‘You need to go to Mitre 10 not Bunnings,’ one said.
Her attempts weren’t all for nothing though with some potential suitors asking her to let them know which Bunnings she’d be heading to next.
The woman said she’d arrived at Bunnings Warehouse early in the morning to suss out any potential partners but still had no luck securing a date
