2 Idioms for love – 1 good and 1 bad

Let’s start with the good one.

Idiom - to be head over heels. Kimgriffithsenglish.com the blog to improve, practice and maintain your English as a second language.

To be head over heels* literally means you fall and your head goes lower than your feet – like an acrobat jumping. In this idiom it means to be crazy about someone, to be very much in love.  Have you ever been head over heels for someone?

Vocabulary * heels = the back part of your foot or shoe.

And now the bad one. When you are having troubles in your relationship you can say you are on the rocks or the relationship is on the rocks.. It doesn’t mean the relationship is definitely finished but it is a possibility.
