Why is it referred to as falling in love? What are you falling off? It makes it sound like jumping out of a plane of stability and casual relationships into the abyss of curtains and matching dishes. If it is falling, perhaps a pre-nup is the parachute.

When you fall, you are going from a higher place to a lower place. You might skin your knees, or, if you have a brother that trips you when your hands are in your pockets, get a bloody nose. Doesn’t that seem more like when love ends instead of starts? (well except the tripping by your brother) See, falling in love doesn’t make sense. Some people told me it is because you feel out of control. However, falling isn’t out of control or random in the least. Gravity says we are going to fall. Now, being whisked up in a big wind through flocks of seagulls…that seems out of control.

Perhaps it should be climbing to love, or elevating, or jumping. There should be some word that implies going from a lower plateau to a new improved higher one. “Hey, Babe, I am lofting a new rung of the ladder for you.” I just seems like if you are going to be in love, the process should have a more appealing course of action. I get it that it seems unpredictable and scary to be in love. I get it that many people have lost their heart and minds to unrequited love. Still, falling to your emotional death seems somewhat unattractive, doesn’t it?

I have decided I am not going to do that. I wish to climb to the next rung of the ladder instead of fall off some precipice.

Am I wrong?

I think not.

    I guess nothing about love makes sense.

      perhaps, but shouldn’t it? perhaps we are so focused on what it isn’t, we forget what it is.

        love should never make you feel like you are falling .It should be an emotional high that makes you feel better not worse! If you are falling that person should be there to catch you and when that happens you know you are with the right person!
