what makes the heart go pitty-pat?

I’ve always been kind of curious about the genesis of the valentine heart as a symbol of romantic love.

The theory, as I’ve always known it, is that it is a stylized picture of an actual heart.

But I actually think it’s something else.

Let me know what you think.

    but seriously, I can’t see how it’s relevant. It’s a simple symbol that’s easy to draw, and I can see someone drawing it and considering its appearance as similar to a human heart. It’s way too easy for humans to see patterns in randomness, and I think that’s what you’re doing now. It’s a random coincidence that boobs look like a heart drawing when pressed together like that – it means nothing.

    I read/saw/heard somewhere it’s an upside down butt. If you look at a bottom (naked, obviously) and draw a heart, it works, too. I guess all kinds of theories abound!
