Tinder just got harder for men

Indian women are in control… on Tinder, at least. As if getting matches on Tinder weren’t hard enough, now the app is introducing ‘My Move’ which allows women the option to prevent men from talking altogether – even if the two have “matched.” However, luckily for most of us, the feature is currently only available for Apple’s iOS operating system in India.
