It's hard enough to express your feelings IRL, but now, you've gotta do it on social media too. Why? Because Valentine's Day.
Whether or not you're celebrating with a special someone, this holiday brings up all kinds of unexpected emotions. Keep that in mind as you craft the perfect Instagram caption to go along with your V-Day post. You want people to like what you post, not roll their eyes at a cliché and keep scrolling. Let these suggestions inspire you, whether you're posting your love for your galentine's squad, hoarding chocolate, wow'ing everyone with your #couplegoals, or are just generally thrilled about all things pink and heart-shaped.
Here's a legit list of Valentine's Day Instagram captions below. Hopefully, these will decrease even the tiniest bit of your V-Day stress, so you can live (laugh) and love to the fullest!
