    So i've realised over the past few months that whenever I am asked anything about my day or life that doesn't include her she later tries to get one back? for example she asked me 'how was work' I told her I love it, it's my favourite part of the day..but now she won't stop going on about how much she loves her work and how it's her favourite part of the day too. She would never say anything like that before I said what I did. Another example..she asked if I like who I work with, I said I get along with them very well (both of them being girls) prior to this she never mentioned anything about the people she works with but since I said that, now she won't stop talking about how much she enjoys working with her colleagues, is she winding me up?

    Hard to say. perhaps she is competitive, insecure or either of the things you said,. We only have your version. Wouldnt surprise me eventually its going to cause an issue and you will split though.

    Nah we've been together for 3 years, this has just started recently, I hadn't thought about her being competitive, maybe it is that since she's always been working and i've just started recently.

    Its hard to say as you pick a lot up from knowing and observing in person. Maybe it will just die down. Maybe dont mention it if this si the only area she needs to respond with bigger an better.

    Maybe she wants to have the same feelings as you?

    Just like there's no hidden motive in you telling her about your work life, you should just embrace hers despite her motives. Make a conversation out of it. Ask her more questions, she's not telling you anything wrong, is she? If you like her enough and want to be with her then just embrace is despite her motives. Just receive it in an exact same way, you're telling her about your work
