Did you get your heart broken a while back? Or maybe you were just super busy because of a new job? Or a particular college year may have proven to be especially taxing. For whatever reason, you haven't been dating lately. But the summer has come and gone, and the cuffing season is upon us, so you may be ready to rev up your dating life again. If that's the case, check out these Instagram captions for selfies when you're single and ready to mingle.

The truth is that social media carries a lot of power when it comes to testing the waters with someone cute, flirting with new people, and locking down dates. Do not underestimate the power of a good DM-slide. If it weren't for Instagram DMs, Wells Adams may have never asked out Sarah Hyland and their entire relationship may not have existed! What a shame that would be.

Paired with the right selfie, a bold Instagram caption can invite a flood of flirty messages from your followers. You never know who might see it — maybe your longtime crush or maybe someone new. And if you never broadcast that you're single and open to meeting people, how will your followers know? Without further adieu, let the Instagram fun commence!
