depuis que

Why is the passé composé used here:  "Depuis que je t'ai rencontré.." when the rule says you use "depuis que + l'indicatif" --very confusing and frustrating without an explanation.

Hi Linda,

But l'indicatif includes passé composé and the rest of the conjugations in that mood.

The other moods are subjonctif / conditionnel / Impératif

Mode indicatif

Hope this helps?
