Originally Published: 

February is the season of love. Whether you're crushing hard on your bae or your bestie (Galentine's Day, anyone?), it’s a time to celebrate falling head over heels. This dreamy month in the middle of winter often requires some Valentine’s Day Instagram captions for when you want to hit the share button and spread the love. Maybe you plan on getting dressed up for a date night, or brunching it with your gal pals and ordering plates of super sweet French toast. Either way, these captions won’t be too cheesy.

They’ll perfectly capture the rollercoaster of love that keeps us coming back time and time again. Some may quote your favorite love songs that you play on repeat in the car, or the romantic comedies you watch until you have every single line memorized. Sure, your favorite flicks might get cheesy, but love is a little cheesy at times and occasionally requires a box of tissues.

Sometimes it leaves you laughing so hard in your kitchen, and other times it might inspire you to fall in love with every aspect of your life. Posting something on social media gives you the opportunity to spread that love out into the world — and that's pretty rad, too. Here are 30 captions for Valentine’s Day that’ll give your followers a break from the cheese, while spreading the love. Ready, set, share.
