Dear Carl,

Thank you so much for your explanation and patience. Now I understand them all.

To fall in love is to begin to experience feelings of love towards; "She fell in love with her teacher"

The word fall is used to to convey the idea of passing suddenly and passively into a state of body or mind

Here are some examples of using the word fall in this way:
"fall into a trap"; "She fell ill"; "They fell out of favor"; "Fall in love"; "fall asleep"; "fall prey to an imposter"; "fall into a strange way of thinking"; "she fell to pieces after she lost her work"

Does this help?
