    We were just having fun

    Is this correct and natural?

    We were just having fun. It was hard to say who was playing who but it was all a game until it wasn't. Until things got out of hand and we fell for each other.

    I would expect "when things got out of hand" to mean somebody got hurt.

    How about "until we got serious/sobered up"?
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    Things took an unexpected turn. We fell for each other.
