140+ Short Love Messages for Text & Instagram Captions

We put together a great list of short love messages that can be used when you are sending a quick text or added to your Instagram captions.   


Small moments of connection

If you’ve ever experienced the absolute STRESS of not knowing what to caption your pictures on Instagram, these are for you. 


The amount of times I have purely given up and not posted anything because of not thinking of a caption is embarrassing. 


Sometimes this also happens when you are sending texts to your partner. We have those when are brains just are not braining, and they go completely blank. 


This is to help all of you guys out when you just need a bit of inspiration. 


We completed a great article on why couples break up and a very important part of that was what was labelled “tiny bids” for attention.


What this means is that we need to have constant positive moments with those that we love. 


Couples each use different ways to try to connect with each other and our list of short love messages, makes that a little easier.


By sending a quick text or posting a couple picture with a short love message you can create these small moments of connection. These small things help to keep couples connected throughout the day.


It’s crazy to think how much dating and life have changed since social media and smartphones became popular. 

There are obviously positives and negatives, but I for one am grateful to have the ability to contact my partner whenever I want and be able to send them these small moments of connection. 

Short love messages

Once again, thinking of Instagram captions can be a nightmare, I really understand. Here are some helpful options for short Instagram captions that you can use instead of thinking of your own. 


These are great for your favorite photos of you and your partner when you just want to share your love a little bit!
