    Re: since + past tenses

    Hello Hela

    I don't see Philly on line, so will try to answer.

    All the versions are fine, but the meanings are slightly different:

    1. I feel/am feeling much better since I moved house.
    2. I feel/am feeling much better now that I have moved.

    #1 uses the moving house as a time marker; but #2 suggests that moving house caused the "feeling much better".

    1. I feel/am feeling much better since I moved house.
    3. I have been feeling much better since I moved house.
    #1 focuses on "feeling much better" in the present; #3, in the recent past.

    All the best,

    MrP

    I agree with Mr. P.
