So I need to input this in a string for a software.

When two people match each other (like each other) the software will say:

You are matched!

How can I put this in a Portuguese version that is short and simple?

Edit: This match which I forgot to mention has nothing to do with a relationship type of match. It simply means that two random people followed each other. The original term is "You are Matched" which I unfortunately can't change.

  • Vocês combinam. – André Lyra Jan 19 '17 at 11:51
  • There is a problem here. Software match é uma correspôndencia feita pelo programa. To match two people. Então quer dizer que essas duas pessaos foram postas juntas. Foram juntadas pelo programa. No fundo. é casar mesmo. :) No sentido: Essa calça casa com essa blusa? – Lambie Jan 22 '17 at 1:24
  • LOL! The thing I forgot to mention is that the pars can be of either sex and it occurs for the simple fact of someone liking each other. As in, similar to a Facebook like.. No sentimental meaning at all. I should've added this to the question but I totally forgot to observe how it could've been observed from different perspectives. – Hugo Jan 27 '17 at 18:44
  • Hugo, I've edited my answer, wrote a new one really, in light of your edit. – Jacinto Feb 28 '17 at 20:12

Em se tratando de um site de relacionamentos, e dependendo do meu público, eu diria:

  • Encontramos tua cara-metade.
  • Encontramos teu par perfeito.
  • Encontramos tua alma-gêmea.
  • cara-metade - "o parceiro amoroso com quem se pode encontrar mais afinidades"
  • alma gêmea - "pessoa com quem se tem profundas afinidades, geralmente em relacionamento amoroso."
  • par - "conjunto de duas pessoas, objetos, animais etc. iguais ou que apresentam a mesma natureza"

Embora os dicionários portugueses citem "cara-metade" apenas como sinônimo de esposa, em pt-BR o termo se aplica a qualquer um dos parceiros.

New answer

It seems you are trying to find an expression for two persons who followed each other (let's consider for example in twitter). I would say that this can happen for many reasons and people don't really to have a relationship in real life (i.e they don't have to like each other, or even know each other).

If the relevant message is that two persons are now following each other I would go for:

Você e o João estão seguindo-se. (You and João are following each other)

Seguir is quite common around social networks

If the relevant message is that there is a mutual retribution (they like each other twitter posts, for example) that resulted in them following each other see @Jacinto answer. I prefered his Você é correspondido suggestion.

This expression can have the advantage of including the meaning that two persons are alike according to the 2nd definition of Priberam

Ser igual, equivaler, retribuir condignamente.

Old answer

If the intent is to match two people according to their interests, like the question suggested I would go for parceiro(a):

Encontrámos um(a) parceiro(a) (We found a match/partner)

In priberam you can find the defenition of parceiro

(latim partiarius, -a, -um, que tem uma parte) adjectivo

  1. Que tem poucas diferenças em relação a outro. = PAR, PARELHO, SEMELHANTE substantivo masculino

  2. Pessoa ou entidade que está em parceria com outra para atingir o mesmo objectivo. = COMPANHEIRO, COMPARTE, PAR, QUINHOEIRO, SÓCIO

  3. A pessoa com quem se joga ou dança.

  4. [Regionalismo] Tratamento recíproco dos que foram mordomos numa festividade ou confraria no mesmo ano.

  5. [Regionalismo] Tratamento recíproco dos pais dos cônjuges.

  6. [Popular] Pessoa que tem esperteza. = ESPERTALHÃO, FINÓRIO

The word parceiro can be used to refer to someone that is alike (1st definition "whom that has little difference with someonelse")

Or to refer to someone that I like (2nd definition "human, or entity, that is on a partnership to reach the same goal)

It would even fit on a game, if you were developing one (3rd definition "A person to play with")

  • Eh pá, soice, se é porque eles gostam um do outro, acho que e é mais a 2 e 3 que são relevantes aqui – Jacinto Jan 18 '17 at 21:00
  • @Jacinto Fiquei na dúvida no que o AP quiz dizer com "like each other" (se sao parecidos, ou se gostam um dum outro). Mas posso amendar um bocado a resposta. – Bruno Costa Jan 18 '17 at 21:03
  • Não é impossível a tua interpretação, mas eu nesse caso teria escrito (are like each other) – Jacinto Jan 18 '17 at 21:07
  • @BrunoCosta Na verdade, significa os dois: ambas as partes expressaram o desejo de conhecer a outra, e ambas as partes são suficientemente similares para serem emparelhadas pelo software. Mas sua sugestão já inclui os dois significados (pelo menos na atual edição). – Ramon Melo Jan 19 '17 at 18:42
  • Bruno, I disavow your interpretation of my suggestion és correspndido. I specifically and primarilly mean that two people like each other's stuff, not primarilly that they have something in common (although they must have in some degree) and not al all that they are alike.For instance, you follow with interest my etymology answers, and és correspondido because I follow with no less interest your grammar answers. – Jacinto Mar 1 '17 at 19:31
