Falling in love has never been quite so...impersonal.

http://www.intellmktg.com/im/inlove/val_hist.htm

If you've ever wondered about the origins of the goriest day of the year [all those bleeding hearts can get quite upsetting], it's time for a quick history lesson.

The story goes something like this: when the evil Roman Emperor Claudius realized that all the young men in town found spooning with their women far more enjoyable than going to war, he was so annoyed that he banned all marriages in the city. Enter Saint Valentine, a do-gooder who disobeyed Claudius and performed marriages for young lovers in secret.

Needless to say, this pissed old Claudius off, and he sentenced Valentine to prison. Valentine languished in prison, a martyr to the cause of true love, until his death on February 14, 270 BC [not a minute too soon]
