If you're in a long distance relationship (LDR), expressing your love and devotion to your partner is not something exclusively saved for Feb. 14. When physical closeness is not a possiblity, couples need to rely more on a verbal way to let each other know how they feel. For people in LDRs, Valentine's Day Instagram captions from the heart can help show your partner (and the world) how much they mean to you.
Akin to many of the singles out there (sure, some singles DGAF), Valentine's Day can be just as lonely for someone in an LDR who can't be with their SO on that day, especially since you're likely already missing them. Carving out the time to make the day count and assure each other that you're still there for them can help to build a stronger connection and a lasting relationship. Taking advantage of the holiday known for grand displays of affection by bringing public attention to your digital relationship bubble will definitely help.
Now, you just have to decide if you want to go with a sappy caption or funny caption.
