Debut Your Single Era With These Confident AF Instagram Captions

Soft launch this, hard launch that… it seems like every time something is announced on social media, it usually has to do with a new relationship or an upgrade to an existing relationship (an engagement, pregnancy, etc). As social media continues to grow as a space for people to feel comfortable talking about their personal lives, Gen Z is getting a taste of it all; the good, the bad, and everything in between when it comes to romantic partnerships. 

Social media users have seen the rise and fall of relationships across different platforms – all through the lens of an iPhone. While most of the time, what we’re really seeing is bits and pieces of a much larger picture, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the romanticization of it all. Nowadays, if you spend an hour on TikTok, there’s a good chance you’ll spend half of that time scrolling past videos of and/or about couples. Gen Z eats up lovey-dovey content; there’s no doubt about that. But there’s one thing Zoomers love more: authenticity.

Nobody can escape break-ups – unless you choose to be alone forever (no judgment here girl, especially in this dating climate) and it’s the one time we really have to lean on our community and friends for support. Gen Zers show our support most through digital channels because it’s what we’re so used to communicating with – and that’s why soft (or hard) launching your single era is the modern way of updating everybody you stay connected to. Plus, it’s always fun to give a little hint as to what’s going on in your life while still staying a little bit mysterious.

If you’ve been sitting on some pictures to post (I know you are!) and need some good Insta captions, you’ve come to the right place. I have more than 40 single Instagram captions that you can choose from (depending on your chosen photo dump vibe, OFC).
