@ IamOged When two hearts are joined they form a kind of similar shape to ♥ .
It symbolizes two People becoming one body, one heart, etc that means love.

Mirror image of two hearts fused together is what forms that shape we call love.

I think it's a psychological thing, since childhood we've always assumed it to be so, and even now, we still refuse to let go.

TheInquisitor:
Not only is that false but also the logic behind the fact that we assume a person thinks or feels with their heart. The heart has nothing to do with feelings,thoughts,intuition,instincts or decisions at all. The heart is not a mind of it's own.
The heart's only function is to pump and distribute blood . it ruptures when there's too much work load. The nerves are responsible for feelings transmitted by the brain. every intelligence,intuition thoughts and instincts is done by the brain,not the heart.
All the thinking is done by our brain, all the emotions are created by brain. Love which is so much associated with heart is a part of brain functioning.


Sure-Emotions, like fear and love, are carried out by the limbic system, which is located in the temporal lobe. While the limbic system is made up of multiple parts of the brain, the center of emotional processing is the amygdala, which receives input from other brain functions, like memory and attention.
amygdala
hippocampus
hippothalamus
cigulate Gyrus
prefrontal cortex
and so on both coordinate dis "thing" Love. Do mad men or women know or feel what is LOVE??
When dis part get damaged den ability to feel or love is lost even with perfect function of the heart.

There are schools of thought that believe that this particular shape used to represent love isn't actually derived from the shape of the human heart, since it doesn't bear much resemblance to it, or from certain leaves of plants that carried huge cultural and religious significance as more reputable historical schools of thought believe. They believe however, that the love shape is actually modeled after the shape of certain parts of the female anatomy, like breasts and buttocks, which makes a lot of sense, given that the age and cultures when these conventions originated was one were moral decadence, especially of the sexual kind, was pervasive, and the female anatomy had a lot of artistic and literary relevance and people weren't sanctimonious towards it's open, un-clad display and portrayal in various creative fields.

I am usually cynical about symbolic representations of cultural conventions, and well-subscribed conventional notions, and I tend to lean more towards ideas that contradict popular belief, especially controversial but logical ones that are backed by empirical evidence. My non-conformist approach towards this particular subject was reinforced in an episode of big bang theory when Amy stated that the love shape was originally based on the form of a female bending over. I was like, "I knew it." But it still doesn't count for anything though. It's just a case of confirmation bias, given that no one knows the actual history of the shape.
