I am writing a dating website (for example) which allows a person to search for partners matching certain features. i.e "non-blondes in New York".
I am having trouble trying to find the perfect words to use that distinguish between:
- search criteria that is used for queries like ( location is equal to New York )
- search criteria that is used for queries like ( hair colour is not equal to blonde )
I am not necessarily looking for purely academic words - because they may not be understood by the general population. Despite that, academic words may end up being the best choice.
I have suggested some answers and would be interested to see which are the most sensible choice of words.
Feel free to add extra suggestions. There are probably some really obvious ones that I cannot see from the perspective of the mental trench that I'm sitting in.

- positive Criteria
- negative Criteria
- additive Criteria
