A serious tool based on solid research

Fix A Fight is based on solid research about relationships. It looks pleasant, is easy to use, and it is a serious tool that is proven to work for couples who are willing and open. If you are reading this, it likely means that you are willing and ready to put useful energy into your relationship.

Clashes in relationships are common and natural. It is a normal part of intimacy. However, fights can drain the feelings of love, attraction, safety and support that you want with each other. If you don't find a way to repair the damage, your relationship could become a statistic.

What really happens is an injury to your intimate connection, and a relationship without intimacy is kind of like a car with flat tires. It looks like it could go somewhere, but the ride is very unpleasant.

Look at it this way—it's normal for tires to go flat every now and then on your car. If you have a flat tire, you don't call the whole car ruined. You find a way to fix it and get back on the road. If your relationship gets punctured and deflated by conflict, you can have Fix A Fight to help you—and it is right in your pocket.

If it's breaking—fix it!

Long-term happiness in a relationship depends to a large degree on how you respond to each other after a fight. Relationship experts tell us that there is a natural rhythm of rupture and repair in relationships. The quality of repair work is an important factor that separates highly satisfying relationships from those that are miserable and doomed to fall apart. So get Fix A Fight and be prepared to make the best out of the difficult spots that may lie ahead.
