The concept is associated with a set of metaphors attempting to convey the speed and intensity of falling in love by describing it as a physical process of falling or being struck. Alternately, falling in love is often described with reference to Cupid’s arrow. As early as 1915, Freud asked rhetorically, “Isn’t what we mean by ‘falling in love’ a kind of sickness and craziness, an illusion, a blindness to what the loved person is really like?”
Half a century later, in 1971, Hans Loewald took up the theme, comparing being in analysis ‘to the passions and conflicts stirred up anew in the state of being in love which, from the point of view of the ordinary order and emotional tenor and discipline of life, feels like an illness, with all its deliciousness and pain’.
