I love metaphors, and how we use them in every day language.
Most people are familiar with story telling metaphors, like Aesop’s Fables. These have pretty clear meanings, like slow and steady wins the race, or a bird in the hand is worth in the bush (which is a metaphor in itself.)
Then there are metaphors to describe complex underlying phenomenon, like when politicians say things like “a rising ride lifts all boats” when referring to the massive and complex economy, or when people talk about Schroedinger’s Cat to describe in the indescribable ideas behind Quantum Physics.
Then there’s the day to day metaphors we use in our day to day language.
The theory goes like this: Once upon a time, people only talked about physical objects. Rocks, trees, dinner, etc. Action words (verbs) were used to describe the motion of these objections (nouns), or things.
But as society became more and more complex, these “things” became more and more abstract.
However, our brains had already laid down the structure for grammar. So we had to talk about these abstract “things” as if they were real things.
Which gives a pretty interesting clue into our minds, about how we think about things, often times based on the preposition used along with these things.
Let’s take the simple sentence, “Fall in love.”
“Fall,” of course, is an action word, or verb. “love” is the noun of the sentence. “in” is a clue how our mind perceives this particular noun.
Because the preposition “in” is used, that’s a clue that “love” is something like a container. Something that we are inside of. In a box. In a house. In a cave. In love.
Fall describes how we get there. Not by choice. Nobody choose to fall.
So when a girl “falls” in “love,” it happens unexpectedly, and unconsciously. Meaning she has no choice.
Meaning that when you behave in the right way, and hit those unconscious buttons in the right order, she won’t have ANY choice BUT to fall in love with you.
What makes girls fall in love? Confidence, a strong, non-needy frame, and most importantly, a Man With A Plan.
A PLAN that is more important than her.
