Question by Shintsu: How did the heart come to represent love?
I’ve always found it rather unusual that the heart is associated with love, how and why did the heart come to represent love? And thereby, how did the heart come to be represented by the cartoon style heart shape instead of some other shape?

Best answer:

Answer by kawther
since primitive cultures heart was considered the main organ of the body. since the heart is continuously beating and heart beats become faster when the person is excited or in love.
recently studies found some nerve tissues on the heart that deal with emotions however more studies are needed. so the old myth is not absolutely wrong.
