16 Valentine’s Day Instagram Captions That Are Hilarious Instead Of Sickening

Valentine's Day has to be one of the most emotional days of the year — and that means that things can get really corny really fast, especially if you're in a relationship. Think cheesy gifts like huge bouquets of red flowers, giant teddy bears, and heart-shaped boxes of chocolate (all nice and fun to receive, of course, but still — cheesy). As for the the cards? Forget about it. It's tough to go into a card store and find a Valentine's Day card that isn't dripping with sticky sweetness. Unfortunately, that same problem has made its way to Instagram. V-Day captions tend to be ridiculously romantic or kind of a little depressing. This year, do something different — use a Valentine's Day Instagram caption that is hilarious instead of sickening.

Whether you want to express your love for the person you're dating or just want to take a jab at your own single status, there's no reason you can't do it without making someone smile, even for a second. There are plenty of sweet V-Day quotes out there, but there are also plenty of funny ones, and honestly? The funny ones are always the best. Your Instagram post doesn't have to be a total cliche, it can be unique amongst a feed full of of flowers and candy! Even if your own picture is flowers and candy, at least the caption can stand out. Check out these caption ideas and feel free to use one... or a bunch:
