Why people fall in love? Why not rise in love?

I do not understand why people even use the expression 'fall in love'. why not 'rise in love'? Do you not feel it rather derogatory to fall?

In love one is often hurt. One of the hurts could be unrequited love. Since normally one is hurt by "falls" only. Love many times begins with hurts it is usual to say one falls in love. However your Love is unconditional you are only rising in Love. Ah! there I am able to imagine when one could rise in love and be hurt too - If the person is very tall, and he has bent on his knees and has expressed his love but suddenly rises ti hit the roof. Ouch!! You have risen but hurt too!

Never really thought about that, but it's very true. "Falling" does sound to down. I never really use the term all that much myself, maybe Ive always thought the same thing subconsciously. I just usually use "in love" or "do love". Why not just use the term "rise in love" whenever you can, maybe you can get other people using it, hehe.
