How do TypeTango keywords work?

There are two sets of keywords: positives and negatives. To view and edit these keywords, go to your profile.

If you love to dance and dislike sarcasm, you'd enter dancing in positives and sarcasm in negatives. When you search, all your keywords are compared to all other users' keywords, and users are shown in order of total match score.

How do keyword weights work?

Keyword weights control the relative importance of your keywords when searching. The higher the weight you assign to a keyword, the more it will increase or decrease your match score. If you assign the weight of 10 to dancing and only give 2 to sarcasm, dancing will be considered five times more important than sarcasm. The maximum keyword weight is 250.

What does the option to match shared negatives on the Search page do?

If the "Match shared negatives" option is disabled, then the search will only match your positives with other users' positives, your positives with others' negatives, and your negatives with their positives, but it will not match your negatives with their negatives. The reasoning behind this is that shared dislikes aren't as important as shared likes. You will still see all shared negatives when viewing a person's profile--they just won't be reflected in the match score.

What does the option to restrict keywords in Profile do?

If you choose to restrict keywords, other users will be able to see only those of your keywords which they entered as well, and vice-versa. If you don't choose to restrict keywords, other users will see all of your keywords, and you'll be able to see all of theirs.
