“Dont know where to start with the things which are...”

Written on: 07/08/2013 by review1111 (1 review written)

Dont know where to start with the things which are wrong with this website. But I am here mainly because after changing my status to a free member Citysocialising kept taking money out of my account every month for 8 months. I only realised this recently and contacted them about it. Get this apparently they dont deal with customers over the phone. Its easy to take £13 from my account every month but cant speak to me over the phone. I am yet to hear back... Do not join this site as this may… Read Full Review

“Stole money from my account - dont trust! ”

Written on: 03/06/2013 by jim159 (2 reviews written)

I had problems at an event with drunken men being aggressive. The staff on the website didnt care and told me to 'block them'. Blocking email messages doesnt really help you when someone is in the same room as you!! They then continued to take money from my account without my consent and refused to return it. I eventually got written confirmation that my account was cancelled (this took two months) but they would not provide confirmation that they would not retain my details as I asked and did… Read Full Review

“All alone in my city................still.”

Written on: 29/03/2013

This website for me, is just an email address collection site, I expect to receive new spam soon. My city is locked, it needs over 200 members for it to be of any use, but once over that, it wouldn't make any difference, as you would have to pay standard £7.99 a month, to email other users and create events, (though if you are one of the first 200 in your city, apparently you get a lifetime prem account). Really, why would anybody pay to do this, when Meetup is basically the same thing, but… Read Full Review

Kat901's Comment

Written on: 11/04/2013

I've been a member for quite a while and actually I like the fact that it is a paid members club as it cuts down on the huge portion of losers that use Meetup because it's free. Quality of people you meet on citysocialising is much much higher and for less than a tenner a month you'd pay that for your gym club or if you're a member of a private members club like Shoreditch House (which I am). So it depends what suits you I guess.

“Assurances broken”

Written on: 28/03/2013

Been waiting 2 months for them to sort out an issue with my membership. The new website seems clunky and lots of problems have been experienced, as admitted by the people who run the organisation. Assurances to me about getting my membership sorted out have been given and broken. It gives the impression of being very sloppily run and I feel very let-down… Read Full Review

“Been a great help....”

Written on: 13/03/2013

After moving to Manchester last September I found myself in a new city with only new colleagues and a couple of friends of friends to call a social circle. I found CitySocialising through google and took the plunge to attend a night for their new members - it was great everyone was similarly nervous and a bit shy but after a couple of glasses of wine we all relaxed and had a really enjoyable night. I now go out with the CS group at least once a week and have made some great friends who i… Read Full Review

“City Socialising Scam!”

Written on: 20/11/2012

Where do I start? I decided to join CS because I wanted to make friends and meet new people after graduating from uni. At first I was a free member and didn't pay but that Meant that I was limited in terms of being able to message people and be more active on the site. I decided to therefore pay for a few months of membership so that I could hopefully meet new people. I should have noticed warning signs before joining and looking back I regret not paying attention to them. I received messages… Read Full Review

“Sinister City Socialising”

Written on: 18/07/2012

Having experienced City Socialising's tactics regarding it's 'members', I can honestly say that they are quite sinister in trying to monopolise people's social lives for their own profit. A few of us who were active members (we suspect many profiles are not actually active) made constructive criticism to try and improve things, but when City Socialising young over-zealous marketing types found out (we suspect by viewing our private e mails on their site,as it was highly unlikely they could have… Read Full Review

“Great Idea website needs a bit of work”

Written on: 27/07/2011

Overall the concept of City Socialising is good and I recommend it to friends and colleagues all the time. I find it a nice great way to meet people in a new city or to enlarge your circle of friends. Generally the events are good and in Edinburgh there are a variety of things to do. I also like the idea of being able to go to another city's socials when I am traveling. I would like a bit more variety in the events as bars and clubbing are fine but a few other types of events would be… Read Full Review

“The Monday Blues!”

Written on: 24/07/2011 by RCVV (1 review written)

The main problem with City Socialising is that I rarely have a voice left by Monday if going to their events over the weekend! This is not such a big problem, as I work for myself....and I'm not that big on talking to myself. There is a huge variety of events on each day, from tea to cinema to walks to clubs, and as a member you can not only go to City Socialising organised events, but also to the members events (which you can also set up yourself if U want). I like this idea, because if you… Read Full Review

“Review of citysocialising”

Written on: 24/07/2011 by ad55ter (1 review written)

"A great way to expand your social circle" When you move into a city one of the social challenges is often finding a group of friends with similar interests. Cue citysocialising. It was only after I had been in Leeds for a few months that I came across citysocialising- it was a shame I had now discovered it earlier. The concept is a good way to build up your social circle quickly and with the number of events being organised, it is also a good way to fill up your social life. The website also… Read Full Review

“A great way to meet new people”

Written on: 23/07/2011 by SudJules (1 review written)

Cambridge can be a hard place to meet new people with it's 'town and gown' divide but CS Cambridge has made it fun and easy! CS Cambridge may be only a new CS city but already is has a great bunch of active and friendly members. I have been on some fun socials (and a few that weren't quite so fun, but hay that's life and you can always head home early!) and have made a great bunch of friends. It can be a bit daunting to head off to meet a load of people 'off the internet', but I would say… Read Full Review

“Still as excited as the first time!!”

Written on: 21/07/2011

It's been 2 years since I joined CitySocialising Manchester when I my social life was non-existent and I was bored to death. I tried various methods to meet like minded people but it was hard to do so. I became a fan straight away and never looked back since then. Although it's been a while but I still feel as excited as my first time whenever I go out for a social whether I'm attending or hosting. I've met some really good friends, we keep in touch and hang out from time to time but the best… Read Full Review

“The place to be to make friends”

Written on: 21/07/2011 by natasha82 (1 review written)

This is an easy going and friendly environment for people wanting to make friends. There are a range of events, so there is something to suit everyone. Plus if someone likes doing something that isn't currently on the site you don't need to be a host to post something so the range is always growing. The site is easy to use and there's the option of a free trial too which is ideal for those who are unsure about trying something like city social. All in all... a winner!… Read Full Review

“A fantacstic way to meet people and socialise”

Written on: 21/07/2011 by ssenroy (1 review written)

I have been a member of City Socialising for a year now and I have also been hosting events for almost 10 months. It is a great way to meet people and make friends. My social life has changed completely since I joined CS. I have met some great people and a couple of my very good friends through CS and I am never short of things to do. The site has all sorts of different events such as movies, drinking, dancing, and bowling, dinners, lunches etc., organized on a daily basis. You can even… Read Full Review

“City Socialising - A fantastic way to make new mates,...”

Written on: 11/07/2011

I've been a member of city socialising since 2009, starting as a member and progressing to host. I've seen my fairly pathetic social life transform into not having enough days in the week, and now have a fantastic bunch of friends whom I share a suprising amount in common with. I wouldn't have any hesitation at all in suggesting it to anyone looking to expand their social circle, and it deserves the good word of mouth it receives. This said, its not without its problems. With an ever rising… Read Full Review

“Great fun and a good way toi make some new mates”

Written on: 05/07/2011 by TFryer (1 review written)

I joined CitySocialising in London back in March and havent looked back. The website could do with a little bit of work, but the people on the site are more what this is about. I decided to join up and give it a go as a lot of my friends are coupled up or moved away from London recently and i decided it was about time to meet some new friends and try and widen my social circle a bit. There are literally hundreds of different 'socials' you can attend each week and pretty much everything is… Read Full Review
