What’s a dating site got to do with newsagents? I’ll get to that in a moment. Check our the map below – 3LOVES offers a Google Maps mashup showing the suburb location of our members – it’s an Australian dating first and we’re the third or fourth dating site in the world to do this.


We have attracted more than 1,500 profiles in just three weeks. We offer free: profiles, photos, videos, sound, winks and messages. Chat will be live soon too.

3LOVES is a social media site built to feed traffic to our Find It online classifieds and directory business. 3LOVES will provide us with a high traffic platform for use in advertising Find It and Find It ads online. This way we eliminate high cost pay per click advertising. We knew going into this online business that we had to control traffic generating costs as much as possible – hence our building of what seems, at first blush, to be an unrelated business.

Newsagents are our retail presence taking payment for ads (when we start charging) and promoting the brand in return for commission and profit share.
