Valentine's Day is on its way which means your social media feeds are about to be filled with flowers, chocolates, and love galore. If you're one of those totally enamored couples posting your romantic day together, you probably don't mind much. But if you're in a long-distance relationship and have to spend the holiday without your boo, you might feel left out. Well, you don't have to. Just because you're not with your S.O. in person doesn't mean you can't post cute Instagram captions about long-distance relationships on Valentine's Day.

In 2017, Instagram reported that the hashtag "#valentines" was shared by 5.5 million users. And being hundreds (or even thousands) of miles away from your partner shouldn't hinder you from celebrating your love online along with the other millions of people. Whether you're posting a screenshot of a V-Day Skype call, a throwback to your and your S.O. at your high school prom, or even the last picture you took together, the only thing more important than the actual picture you post is the caption that you post to go along with it.

Here are 19 captions you and your long-distance boo can use on Instagram for your Valentine's Day post.


"Distance means so little when someone means so much." — Tom McNeal

"Just get your a** back home." — Gym Class Heroes & Neon Hitch

"A** Back Home" by Gym Class Heroes and Neon Hitch is a super old song, but the nostalgia is just what you need for your V-Day Instagram caption. Using this lyric as a caption is a playful and sassy way of telling your S.O. that you want to see them ASAP.

"I would walk 1,000 miles just to hold you tonight." — Vanessa Carlton

I think Vanessa Carlton wrote "A Thousand Miles" especially for long-distance couples. So it's your time to shine. This classic is a great Instagram caption.

Can you even celebrate a long-distance Valentine's Day without quoting Brandy's "Long Distance" in an Instagram caption? The answer is NO.

I used to love "Lucky" by Colbie Caillat and Jason Mraz back in middle school and come to think of it, the lyrics in the song would make the perfect caption for your long-distance V-Day post.


"Hey baby, I'm missin' you like crazy." — US the Duo


US the Duo is the most adorable husband-and-wife singing duo ever and the fact that they make music together is even more heartwarming. What better way to caption your Valentine's Day picture than a cute little reminder that your partner is on your mind?


"Wish you were here."

A meaningful "wish you were here" can be the perfect caption for you and your boo. Simple and straight to the point, this caption says it all without saying too much.
