Any other way to describe "falling" in love? Or do we want to suggest that it hurts?
If you think of a more positive way to describe this wonderful experience, please share. Thanks.
Communing: It is deep, intimate contact in which barriers fall and a person is in direct contact with another person, and there is no separation, no me and you.
That's why it's called "falling" in love, because no sane person would voluntarily walk into a situation like that.
It bloody-well hurts.
That's what I wondered. Some people have been really hurt, so would they like to use another word which gives a different picture? Twilight, hope you heal from the hurt and free yourself to love again.
MsDora, How kind of you. Not many people would respond like that... or even respond.
What a special person you must be.
Its not the falling that hurts. It is the sudden stop at the end of the fall.
I never thought of "falling" as negative before. Isn't there also a bliss in falling. I think of skydiving - a high you get from flying through the air - nothing holding you back, no worries! That's what I think of when I think of "falling" in love!
Yes, I agree. It's like there's nothing there, it's endless, unfathomable; which could mean beauty.
Thanks Laura and Nate for that perspective. Actually, that's beautiful. Shows what a powerful influence experience could be. I have some bruises on my knee from falling. I like yours better.
Sometimes I fall down laughing. Not a whole lot more fun and silly than that. But I really thing that it's almost like someone is falling to their knees in adulation of the other person. Otherwise if you think about many of supposedly happy words are negative. "love you like crazy" so cute I could bite you" "laughing hysterically' even words like chills and shivers could be spooky
Falling in love is beautiful. Love songs are sang all the time. Novels will always be written about how people fall in love. Every experience is unique. First kiss are an act (In most cases-especially with girls) of falling in love for the first... read more
I like to say I found love. There are so many people in this world it's like looking for a needle in a haystack to find someone you can spend the rest of your life with.
I think "giving in" to love. I think so many people associate either lust, or infatuation with love, but to really love someone... you have to be willing to 'give' your heart to theirs. It can't be one-sided, otherwise that's not love... but one person's obsession.
Falling could be considered as a process out of your cognitive control; thus it happens without you controlling it. Falling is not necessarily a hurting experience and it involves both time and space. Until one contemplates or reflects on it one appears blind to the process...That i believe is why the term "falling" is ideal...
I like the term "rising in love". Falling gives the impression that you have no control over it and we do. Think of the different terms used with the word fall. For example: "I fell into a rut." We chose to love but the feeling of love can be so powerful we feel like we have surrendered to it. If we rise in love, love could be put to a higher standard.
There is a wonderful book about it called How To Be An Adult in Relationships. The Five Keys to Mindful Loving. by David Richo.

Is it possible for a person, in my case I'm talking about a guy I know- to be incapable of falling in love and why.Do you feel it's to be looked down upon if a person cannot show love to another in a relationship or pretends to be in love and what would the signs of that be?Thankyou

Do people actually have control over who they fall in love with or does falling in love just happen to them?

What do you mean.?"Describe what exactly you mean when you tell some one you love them.For example, do you have warm fuzzy feelings for them. Do you intend to build them up to be a better person? Are you just trying to get something from him/her?
