27 Romantic Valentine’s Day 2018 Instagram Captions That Will Turn Your Face Into The Heart-Eyed Emoji

Ad failed to load

There are a lot of ways to demonstrate your feelings for that special someone come Feb. 14. There's the classic valentine, of course. A heart-shaped box of chocolates or a thoughtful gift can also have the same effect. If you want to get really creative, you could try some skywriting or a carrier pigeon (bold, yes, but impactful). In 2018, though, very few sentiments are swapped without the help of social media, and that includes Valentine's Day wishes, so whether you're planning to send your sweetie a card, a bird with a scroll tied to its leg, or nothing at all (good luck with that!), you should probably prep your Insta post ahead of time. I've drafted up 27 romantic Valentine's Day 2018 Instagram captions that will turn you — and your significant other — into the heart-eyed emoji. You're welcome!

I guess it's kind of lame that a mushy Valentine's Day post on social media has become a prerequisite for anyone in a relationship these days, but let's face it: it's Facebook's world, and we're just living in it. Resist the urge to knock the value of a sappy pic and just write the dang post. If nothing else, it's a good excuse to share a fun throwback photo and to seem extra cultured with a romantic literary quote (or maybe one from a movie).
