If you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day this year with a Special Someone, the day itself can be a lot. Not only are you expected to express your feelings IRL, but you’re also expected to do it all over social media. With a cute picture. At the right time of day. And with a clever Instagram caption. The pressure = on.

But even if you’re not coupled up, you, too, might feel some pressure on the big day. Maybe you'll want to show off your virtual Galentine’s party, or work celebration, or whatever else on le ‘gram.

Soooo, good news and bad news.

The bad news: You’re kind of on your own for those, uh, IRL “what are we?” and “how do you feel about me” conversations. (Though this article on DTRing can help.)

The good news: We can totally provide you with those Instagram captions for whatever you’re posting February 14th. (And hoooopefully this will alleviate one thing off of your "Omg, I'm having anxiety" list.)

So, behold, the list of V-day Instagram captions that will get alllll the double taps. You’re welcome.
