For a while, Bob Morris spent most of his time posting personal ads, sifting through profile images and reading about potential dates for his 80-year-old dad! He had been enlisted to help his father find a hot boomer babe, but he got a spark in his own relationship with his dad along the way.

Morris, a former New York Times columnist, didn't know what to expect when he set out to find his dad a date, but it was so crazy that he thought it was good enough for a book. "Assisted Loving: The Tales of Double Dating with My Dad" is not only a love story, but a story about the importance of a father-son relationship.

Although he was a little (OK, maybe a lot) taken aback by his father's request, their search helped Morris see older people in a new light.

He talks with Growing Bolder about what sparked him to write the book and his own search for that special someone.

    I believe you've selected a very clever title for your book, Bob.  I've long since believed that a title, whether it be for a book, or simply poetry, can make or break you.  People look at titles and if the title doesn't reach out and touch them they don't care to even look inside and see what the book is about.  It is my belief that many people will open your book because of the title.  It's catchy!  Good luck on the dating front for Dad.
