I walked around NYC with a ‘Looking for a husband’ sign — I may have found him

Karolina Geits is signing up for love. 

Man-hunting in Manhattan is practically a blood sport — just ask anyone in the sea of single ladies looking to land a great catch. 

However, wasting away hours at a bar, hoping to strike up a meaningful conversation with an available guy, is exhausting. And scrolling through the profiles of wannabe playboys on dating apps, searching for at least one serious suitor, is a bummer. 

So when Geits, a 29-year-old beauty influencer who’s been single for two years, finally grew tired of the romance rat race, she took matters into her own hands — literally. 

“I decided to make a sign that says ‘Looking for a husband’ and walk around the city to see if that would work,” the 5-foot-9 model, who lives in Soho, told The Post.

Geits hit the streets with her cardboard billboard after months of matching with noncommittal men on dating apps like Tinder and Hinge. But rather than give up hope, the aspiring bride sought to make an in-person connection with the help of a higher power. 

“I believe that if I make an actual sign for anything I want — a husband, a Birkin, Chanel,” said Geits, “the universe will see it and send me exactly what I want.”

The beguiling brunette, a native of South Asia who relocated to the US in 2017, reeled in more than 8 million TikTok views on footage featuring her hubby hunt.

And he did. 

‘I am glad that I met someone, but I’m more proud of myself for stepping outside of my comfort zone. I want a family, I’m ready for love and I don’t have time to waste.’Karolina Geits on her unorthodox technique for finding a mate

“I exchanged numbers with one of the guys in the video — we’ve been talking for the past few days,” the bombshell told The Post, noting that it took her just 30 minutes of parading before she met a man. Geits chose not to provide his name for privacy purposes.

“We’re just getting to know each other,” she added. “It’s still new, but we’ll see where things go.” 

The siren’s law-of-attraction approach at love is just one of many unorthodox man-snagging techniques currently going viral. The “fake engagement ring” trend has women by donning faux diamond rings — and Los Angeles lawyer Eve Tilley-Coulson, 35, went so far as to publicly to anyone who introduces her to the man she’ll eventually marry. 

“Most of the men on apps aren’t swiping to seriously date,” Tilley-Coulson told The Post in July. “I feel like paying $5,000 for a husband who’s vouched for, meets my needs and is ready for a real relationship is totally worth it.”

Meanwhile, Geits told The Post her cheeky measures were also definitely worthwhile.

“I am glad that I met someone, but I’m more proud of myself for stepping outside of my comfort zone,” she said. “I want a family, I’m ready for love and I don’t have time to waste.”
