Everyone knows that when posting a photo on Instagram, the caption is almost as important as the actual picture. What good is an aesthetically pleasing food shot without a perfect, witty pun underneath it? How can you even think about posting a snap of your best friends without writing something clever to accompany it? While a lot of the best captions are funny, goofy, and witty (or they're the perfect combination of emojis — that can work extremely well if it's not overused), sometimes, humor just doesn't fit your mood. This is especially true if you're missing someone. If you're feeling lost without a loved one and you want the world to know, you need some good Instagram caption ideas about missing someone.
