No matter what he does during the day, when he goes to sleep at night, he awakens every morning at 6:00 am to "I've Got You Babe" blaring on the clock radio.
It's the same goofball morning show, and of course, the same Punxsutawney Phil. It seems no matter what weatherman Phil Connors (Murray) does - from kidnapping Phil the Groundhog to landing himself in jail - he wakes up every day at the same time, right back in his same hotel room, doomed to live Groundhog Day yet again.
For a lot of people, dating is like Groundhog Day. We find ourselves attracted to the same type of person over and over again, and end up smack in the same relationship issues, boyfriend after boyfriend, girlfriend after girlfriend. In other words, we keep dating the same person over and over again. Your new boyfriend or girlfriend may wear different clothes, have a different job, and have a different name, but basically, they're the same old groundhog.
I had several years of groundhog dating back in college. Every guy who asked me out, dated me or even kissed me at a party was either a lawyer or in law school. Now, contrary to what you might think, I was not trolling the local bar association for eligibles. I met them everywhere. They sang to me and bought me drinks in New Orleans, shared their pretzels on airplanes, and once, consoled me at a veterinary office while I was waiting for my cat to lose his manhood. After a year or so of lawyers, lawyers, lawyers, I noticed the pattern and tried to avoid lawyers. No luck. My run-ins with the law (students) continued for another two years.
Dating the same person over and over doesn't have to mean they'll all have the same profession. How many times have you thought to yourself, "Why do I always attract the chronic cheaters/nose pickers/Southpark freaks?" There's a reason. And here it is: Because that's what you're looking for, whether you know it or not.
