If you happen to be one of Cupid’s faves and you have a special someone to celebrate Valentine’s Day with this year, there’s a lot to look forward to. The flowers, the chocolate, the gifts, the ~other stuff~ (wink wink). But, honestly, the day itself can be… a lot. The coordination! The panicked outfit selection! The fight for a dinner reservation! And not only are you expected to show your love IRL, but you’re also expected to prove your relationship on social media. With the perfectly cute but somehow effortless pic. At the right time of day. And with a clever Instagram caption. Somehow this went from “Can you feel the love tonight?” to “Can you feel the pressure tonight?”

Even for those of us who don’t have a boo, the holiday still manages to bring some heat—and not always the sexy kind. Maybe you want to show off your Galentine’s party, or work celebration, or just celebrate your singledom on the ’gram for all the exes who've missed out to see. DW, there's a caption for that.

The bottom line? Look, we get it. February 14 rolls around for all of us, yet everyone’s relationship situation is unique. Unfortunately, we can’t help you un-complicate things with your on-again off-again hookup (although, we will do our best to give spectacular advice). We can’t make a dinner res for you, or deliver flowers. The very good news: We totally can provide you with those Instagram captions for whatever you decide to post, whether it’s a cutesy couple pic, flower arrangement humblebrag, or even solo self-love shot. Behold, the list of Valentine’s Day captions that will get alllll the hearts. You’re so welcome. Xoxo!
