10 Amazing Captions For Your Next Couple Selfie

When it comes to posting a photo of yourself and your partner on social media, there are a few unspoken rules. One, you don’t want to post too many. (That might make you look a little insecure.) Two, you want to make sure both of you look good. If you look amazing and he’s closing his eyes, that’s not fair. And third, you want to make sure you have the perfect caption for your couple selfie. Something witty can help boost the number of likes you get. It can also just make you look a whole lot cooler. Here are a few ideas if you’re looking for inspiration.

  1. “I have about six more versions of this exact photo on my phone.” Thanks to iPhones, we no longer take one good selfie — we take 700. And then we tend to analyze every single one. It’s not necessarily being vain. It’s making sure you catch everything you can before the photo goes live. You don’t want to post something, only to realize later that you have a huge piece of spinach from lunch caught in your teeth. This caption is relatable.
  2. “I still can’t believe this guy puts up with me.” Being completely self-deprecating is usually a turn-off. But, admitting that there’s always room for improvement is healthy. When you meet your life partner, they should accept you just as you are. Any sort of quirks are things you can work on in the future if you want. However, they’re likely part of the reason why you stood out in comparison to everyone else.
  3. “Shortly after this was taken, I asked him if we could move here. He said no.” If you’re on vacation and posing by a gorgeous waterfall or beautiful wooded path, this caption is very funny. Chances are, this conversation did happen. When you’re someplace new, it’s hard to think about life back at home.
  4. “This guy makes any trip fun.” Even if your vacation is less scenic, use this one. This couple selfie caption shows that you’re more about the company than the destination. A real partner should make everything more fun or more enjoyable.
  5. “I think I might be in love.” If you’ve been dating for some time, this caption is a cute way of saying that this person is the real deal. Instead of openly stating “I’m in love,” it’s better if you take a cute approach to it. If the two of you share a bunch of mutual acquaintances, expect a lot of fun comments to follow.
  6. “A couple that lays together stays together.” If your selfie is the two of you out on beach blankets enjoying the waves, this caption makes more sense. You can also substitute “plays” if you’re at a sporting venue, “prays” if you’re both religious, or even “glaze” if you’re in the kitchen whipping up a fun dessert.
  7. “The avocado to my toast.” This is the 2020 version of “peanut butter to my jelly,” which may have been a combo reserved for your best friend. Since avocado toast has been reported to be a “millennial favorite,” people will dig it even more.
  8. “He’s cuter.” He may disagree with this, but it’s a short and simple way to say you’re totally digging your partner. Obviously, this can be changed to “she” if you’re in a same-sex relationship. Cute is better than hot since hotness generally fades with time.
  9. “Any trip is a vacation with this guy.” If your selfie is in a grocery store or hardware store, it’s funny. But, it’s also meaningful — any outing you go on is a fun break from your regular life. It’s short, sweet, and to the point.
  10. “He wasn’t a big fan of photos… until he met me.” Some guys just don’t take a lot of pictures. That could change if you do it more often. If you’re extremely fond of marking the occasion with a selfie, he may start enjoying it. When other couples read this caption, they
  11. “I love him more than pizza.” Or chocolate, coffee, whatever your food of choice is will fit in nicely here and get the point across that you two are in it for the long haul.
  12. “The best.” Two words can describe the love you have for your partner more than any other. In general, you’ll want to be short and sweet with your captions. This is especially true if you post a bunch of couple selfies. Save the long, drawn-out declarations of love for your wedding vows. They’ll be cherished and not scrolled past there.
