You seem to be playing against a quite experienced opponent, what your main flaw is, is that you opening to the game is very weak. You clearly opened out you King much too fast and scattered you pawns in an unorganized manner. You opponent however, opened up with a clasical two knight, two pawn defense giving him the upper edge. Throught the game around move 40, you moved the king back. at this point you had 2 options, one was to leave the king and the rook as they may and move you 2 stationary pawns on the right of the board. Or, you could have moved f7 down to f6 making rooms for an exchange and an opening. Overall, good game play but it might required changing strategies in the case of opening and confidence.
at that time while i was playing 42) rg6 did not came to my mind but overall it looks like rg6 line is interesting one after fxg6 fxg6+ and i get a rook back i should have tried that
1. Transferring the knight to f8 anticipating Qh7 mate.
2. Too many queen moves to grab pawns when it might have been better to improve king safety.
