The theory I like is that it was originally a Roman festival called Februa ('sweat' or 'purge') on February 15th, in which young men would run naked through the streets slapping women with leather whips. The heart symbol was the shape of the Silphium plant, which was a natural contraceptive which went extinct possibly due to overharvesting (iow the Romans farked it to death).
It grew in Cyrenacia, and this is a coin from Cyrene:

Another plausible theory about the heart shape is that it originally looked more like a woman's torso. Look at it. Now you'll never see it any other way.

The historical evidence for Saint Valentine is practically nonexistent, and there is no explanation why he would be associated with the modern traditions, so it's much more likely that it was just the christian church butting in on yet another awesome party.

by "leather whip" I mean "slice of recently-sacrificed animal hide" and by "plant" I mean "seed"

No images of the execution of a Roman priest? Or do I have my history wrong?

RanDomino: by "leather whip" I mean "slice of recently-sacrificed animal hide" and by "plant" I mean "seed"

I'm just gonna take this out of context and build my own narrative.

I'd like to think St Valentine was farked to death on the steps of the temple of Venus.
