What is the difference between a "rut" and a "groove"?

Some say: I've finally found my groove! Others say: I'm in such a rut!
Further:
Rut: a fixed or established mode of procedure or course of life, usually dull or unpromising: to fall into a rut.
Groove:a fixed routine: to get into a groove.

In my view, a groove helps you move along farther, while a rut is when you're stuck in a place or situation.

State of mind, whether or not you enjoy it.
A rut is something like a funk. That's not to say that if something's funky, it's not groovy, although a groove is a totally different thing than a rut. When you are in the zone, you are in a groove, and a rut can be one of the things that throws off your groove. Am I making nonsense yet?
When you are moving along through life and activities at a successful steady pace, that's a groove. When you hit a snag, that's a rut.

Well now... Neither word conjured up those explanations - when I first read the question; I though of a road worn by constant passage and both words apply!

I have to admit that I finally understand the expression "groovy"... smiley:::rolls eyes What do you want? It's a 60's expression and I was just a kid so it only meant "cool" to me! Now I get it!

I think a rut is something you physically get into and a groove is something you physically get into.

I don't like rutting in a groove because it usually means someone has been there before me...Rut your own groove, man.

What is the difference? Did you mean to say a rut is something you physically get into and a groove is something you mentally get into?

I accidentally put get into twice and meant a groove is something you fall into.

I often get distracted, often the reason why some of the things I write make little to no sense.

A rut is immobilizing, like a standstill. Grooves enable motion.

A rut is getting stuck in something negative. A groove is finding a way of doing something positive.

It is all ones perspective. If you like the routine it's your groove. If you hate it, it's a rut.
