Mensagem:  Oi JR

Let's try to look at this from a different angle and see if it brings us some light:

The contrasting conjunction but is used to bring together two non-contrasting ideas.

There are two ways of fixing this:(1) either rewrite the sentence using contrasting ideas, (2)or use a non-contrasting conjunction.

1 -Going out with those two girls, what I do a lot, makes me feel good
    but
    last week I didn't feel good going out with them.

2-I have been going out a lot with these two girls
   and
   since last week I haven't been feeling good with them.

What do you think?
