Wearing your heart on your sleeve

This site lists the origin of "wearing your heart on your sleeve" as William Shakespeare, but I've read elsewhere that it was a custom to write the name of your true love on the inside of your cuff and roll them up at Valentine's to gauge the reaction. Anyone heard that or similar?
