    Default go_too_far/reaching


    -It's the best thing I've ever seen!
    -Don't you think you're going too far?


    Is this ok, please?
    Could I say "you're reaching" instead of "going too far"?
    Thanks

    Hi jctgf,

    Yes, the above is OK. "Going to far" does mean overestimating or over-reaching, so one might also say, "Don't you think you're reaching (a bit here)?"
