40 Valentine's Day Instagram Captions That Aren't Too Cheesy

February is the season of love. Whether you're crushing hard on your bae or your bestie (Galentine's Day, anyone?), I hope you have fallen head over heels for something or someone special in your life this past year. Odds are, whether you're getting dressed up for date night, or just brunching it with your gal pals, you'll inevitably be ready to post some great pics for the V Day holiday on social media. But, we're here to make sure that you are prepared with Valentine's Day Instagram captions that aren't too cheesy. You're crazy in love, but the corny captions can get old for your followers real fast.

Love is definitely a battlefield, because we love to hate it just as much as we love to be completely in it. It's a rollercoaster that keeps us coming back time and time again. We listen to our favorite love songs on repeat, and watch those romantic comedies until we have every single line memorized. We might call those chick flicks like The Notebook cheesy, but find ourselves still still watching and then crying at the end. (Good thing you put the tissues close to the couch.)

Sometimes we call ourselves out for being so soft, but can anyone really blame us? You should always strive to fall in love with your life, even if its just the little things. When you post something on social media, you have the opportunity to spread that love out into the world — and that's pretty rad, too. But, give your followers a break and save the cheese for the V-Day pizza party.
