SEBASTIAN, Florida – You may not find love in Sebastian, according to a new study.

The study also suggests that having a boat on the river may not help you find love. The study analyzed more than 300 U.S. metro areas.

Sebastian, Fellsmere, and Vero Beach ranked 236, earning it a grade of “F.”

The study – conducted by a group called Zumper – came up with its ranking by studying the number of singles within a population, the percentage of singles with bachelor degrees or higher, the number of bars and restaurants, internet use and access for dating apps and average rental prices.

While Sebastian may seem like more than a “F” love destination to some, there are probably some people who might agree with the study.

Sebastian has more families than anything else. This town is where you settle down and enjoy the slow pace, according to the statistics.

There are also those who do find love in Sebastian, such as myself. I also got married here.

Here are the grades (and scores) for some other Florida communities in the Zumper study:

  • Port St. Lucie – F (202)
  • Palm Bay – C- (113)
  • Orlando – C (91)
  • Daytona – D- (171)
  • West Palm Beach – C+ (80)
  • Gainesville – B (37)
  • Tampa – D+ (127)
