Why do people FALL IN Love?

Okay guys, I am not interested in love stories but I will not mind if you share yours:D

However, my main intention is to know why people use "Fall in" when they start liking someone(e.g., I think I am falling in love...). But I don't like this phrase when it is used to express this beautiful emotion. When someone experiences love, they must be feeling great as if they are in cloud nine. That means they are rising, not falling. They should rise in love! 

I think many love stories don't have a happy ending because people fall in love instead of rising and feeling empowered. 

What do you think? Do you want to "fall in" love or want to "rise in" love?

Interesting and useful info would always be appreciated!

Wish you all have a lovely day!:)

Because when we fall, we do it unknowingly, with the air current, along with the gravity, and without exerting any effort just like in love. When someone falls in love he/she does not have to put any effort to love someone, at least initially.

I  am really interested in Human hormones so I was reading this article which says that initially the love kind of resembles infatuations and the brain releases the hormones associated with anxiety, like cortisol. And identify the situation initially as a crisis. Later it releases dopamine which causes a feeling of happiness and oxytocin(main hormone releases after birth) which causes a sense of closeness. At that time we can definitely say that we rise in love after a brief moment of falling.

I never fall in love. Love fell on me. :)

I always thought it logical, to be honest. If you fall into a pit, it happens by accident, it's out of control, and you can't get out of there easily. Same with love. Pretty straightforward to me.

Rising in love is the same as not feeling love anymore. Take for example my very personal experience in love, which I'm ready to share:


I, once, fall in love with chocolate cookies but rose from that only to fall in love with wafer rolls (the ones that are filled with chocolate. Clarified that to not be misunderstood). Now, what I believe is important is not falling or rising but staying faithful, as the opposite of what I did with cookies.

Changed fill in to fill with

I'd say it's because it happens quickly and you can't do much about it. And once you're in it, it surrounds you.

Another explanation from a song,a rather cynical one:D
"It's only falling in love because you hit the ground"
