While Valentine's Day is most certainly about expressing love IRL, you can't deny that it also has a purpose and place on social media. The holiday dually acts as a post prompt, which means you're going to want to find a great picture to share, and an even greater caption. This is the greeting card holiday after all, so sharing a few choice romantic words is part of it. To make it easier for you, I've put together a list of quotes about love to use as your Valentine's Day caption on social media, because caption-less post purgatory is a real thing.

Here I've pulled together a collection of thoughts, phrases, quotes, and musings about romantic love, friendship, self love, and the human heart. Use these relevant quotes as a captions so that you can post as many sweet photos as your heart desires.
