I love, love, love taking photos for Instagram—and yet I hate figuring out captions with a burning passion. Why do they never feel witty enough, short enough, honest enough?? I know I’m not the only one with issues picking a good caption every now and then, so if you experience some Instagram writer’s block right around February 14, refer back to this list of Valentine’s Day Instagram captions and don’t say I never did anything for you.
If you’re already like “Well, guess this doesn’t apply to me because I’m single,” then think again! Valentine’s Day is a great day for singletons to flex on the ‘Gram; TBH, it’s necessary in order to drown out the influx of annoying-AF happy couples. When posting on Valentine’s Day, though, making sure your caption somewhat references the holiday is important. That said, you can definitely get creative with it.
If you’re one half of a happy couple, do me a favor and save the long, cheesy note to your lover for their actual V-Day card. Keep it short and sweet—bonus points if it’s funny, but I will accept sappy too, if you’re really in love and all that jazz. As for single folks, you have two options for what to post on Valentine’s Day, both of which require you looking your absolute best. First: A general Good Pic, accompanied by a sweet, light-hearted caption about being single. Second: A full-on thirst trap, guaranteed to make even the most committed Instagram Boyfriend slow his scroll. Just don’t blame me when you get some drama in your DMs!
Whatever you’re posting, you definitely need a good caption to ground your photo, so read on for these Valentine’s Day Instagram captions and let the Likes roll in on the day of love.
