    Vanessa is the event coordinator. She does as little as possible to fulfill her job and deliver a satisfying customer experience. Their literature and membership contract states that they provide hosts for the events - false. They solicit members to host the events themselves. Vanessa hosts perhaps one event a month - and only if it's convenient for her. If her kids have an activity or she has a family event, she will pressure members to host the event in her place, and cancel events if no-one is willing. She has also cancelled events when there is a willing host, but she had personal priorities that kept her from monitoring the office phone for attending members on the day of the event. Some of the poorest customer service I have ever seen.

    As a single, professional adult I joined the Calendar, then I promptly quit. The Calendar will ask a prospect a screener question: if one is absolutely male or absolutely female (they do not ask questions about one's ethnicity). I am not 100 percent male or female, have an X for gender ID on my license. I choose to not ID with any gender. This entity refuses to acknowledge diversity in gender outcomes and that people MUST be either male or female at all times. I am offended by these 'you must be this or else' tactics required as a pre-requisite. Wonder if this firm sends its profits from members to sexist conservative, pro-Trump candidates or political action committees.

    Let me begin by saying, I don't ever write reviews if an experience is bad, but I could not let this one slide. MSC aka My Social Calendar: The website depicts professionals. I went to an event of 8 people. Bill's Burger Place, West Street, in NYC. The Manager was kind enough to give me the heads up after I voiced my concerns. I was expecting at least a group of 20. Wow seriously, how dare you charge people all this money for an experience that is false. Demographics were way off on so many levels. No disrespect, but... not need to insult folks, not one looked like anyone representative of what appears on the company's website. They have to be paid actors.

    Oh and I was told during the sales call, Katy ** is the person who is always available to talk if any concerns. She sent me one text message, saying I will make your experience worth it. Do not sign up for this so-called social experience. It is garbage and they should be ashamed of themselves for selling this nonsense. BTW most of the events are virtual. I thought I asked the right questions, before signing up. The salesperson was very convincing about the type of people I had questioned her about. So sad she was not honest. Don't be fooled, consider yourself warned. A complete waste of time and money. I will be cancelling my subscription somehow.

    Totally non-professional - Pressure sales tactics to sign up, went to a few events and same 6-8 people show up. Events are disorganized and poorly attended. Their staff does not attend the events, and just says "we can't control that". I guess I should've known from the mistakes in their sales brochures. Don't waste your money.

    You're basically just paying for access to an events calendar. That's it. They have a hands-off approach when it comes to running the events and expect members to run the events instead of providing a professional/experienced event host. Event reservations are messed up about 50% of the time or events are cancelled last minute - The 'event planner', Vanessa, doesn't seem to be able to plan more than 2 or 3 events in a row without some problem with the reservation, but always has a excuse. The people who attend seem to have a wide disparity of objectives and expectations as some have been sold that they will meet someone to date (or more), while others are just looking for social activities and new friends - and since there is no real host equipped to handle this and properly set expectations, many end up disappointed and frustrated after 1 or 2 events. Unfortunately, once they have you in a contract it's your loss - they will not let you cancel early.

    I joined My Social Calendar in February 2021, ready to get out of the house after a year of quarantine. I have participated in over 20 event and met loads of fun people. I often chose the hikes and outdoor dinners, and have attended a few wonderful events like horseback riding and a cruise on the Potomac. I love that I don't have to plan the events or get people to show up. It's only a matter of how much activity I want to pack into my schedule. Each event has a welcoming group atmosphere and there is no awkward dating vibe. I have connected with a few groups of friends that get together beyond the events MSC organizes. I have found a group of adventurous people to get out and explore the DC area with.

    I joined My Social Calendar during the pandemic, in October, when MSC was hosting both virtual events on Zoom, and also outdoor activities like hiking. At that time I had tried online dating and was ready for something real. Real people, real friendships, real activities, without the awkwardness of who pays for what when. I had learned on my own to gauge the energy I feel when I'm around people, and when I met 'my man' at an MSC hike and then connected again at a holiday market event that MSC was hosting, I felt entirely good vibes coming from him. This is something that online dating can't give you. A low key group interaction.

    It turns out 'my man' and I are very much alike in that we enjoy making friends within this group, and soon I volunteered to host events regularly like he does. Now, sometimes I feel like we are youth hostel 'parents' as we help each other herding cats/members, as it sometimes is with last minute changes to the list of attendees. This group is a good place to find friends for life, and if you keep coming back, you and your forever partner will find each other, I'm hundred percent sure. It's not a gallery of models to pick from, though, like online dating can sometimes look like. You have to show up, maybe nudge yourself to go a bit out of your comfort zone, and just start talking to people at the events! Through some long time members I've met three married couples who found each other at MSC, and have heard of others. Generally, folks are friendly and open, and range in age from their twenties to late forties and fifties. Highly recommend it!

    My Social Calendar is a paid subscription to a social network that allows other single adults to go out into the community to mingle. It's a mixed bag of ages ranging mostly from late 20's - 70's+ and you never know who is going to show up. The activities can be simple, laid back dinners to more adventurous aerial obstacle courses and white water rafting or sport activities. The downside is you have to pay for the service on top of each individual event, which can add up being quite costly throughout the month.

    There is a wide range of personality traits, especially in large groups, so people typically gravitate to people they're used to instead of getting to know other/new members. There is more of a ratio of older women than compared to men, which can make the outings awkward at times. But the effort that you put in, is what you receive out of the group. There are seldom amount of couples that come out of the group; it's mostly become people who come out to do the activity and then go home. Seldomly do interpersonal relationships and friendships occur outside the group. As I've said, many different personality traits affect the group as a whole. Some activities can be really fun, and some activities can be disappointing - but that is not at the control of the owners of the site or the event coordinators.

    My Social Calendar is a great social group where you get to meet new people and engage in new experiences together. All the members are singles so you may have an opportunity to meet someone or simply make new friends. Meeting new people in this setting takes the pressure off that you would normally feel when going on a date for the first time. It is a more natural way of meeting people than using a dating app. Also what is nice is there are members of all age ranges and you will see different members at different events. It's not always the same people. Coordinator Vanessa K is wonderful and she is always sending us to new and exciting places. The most important thing is remember is not to judge your experience in this group by just one or two events. Keep going to events because you never know who you will meet and when. You make the most of your membership by attending as many events as possible and even by hosting a few yourself.

    I was a member of 'MSC' - for anyone considering joining, this is nowhere near what they make it sound like... They will want you to commit to a 6-month or 1-year membership contract (non-cancellable/refundable). They will say that you will 'probably meet someone' within 6 months or so to convince you to sign, implying a high rate of successful matches. But the events I experienced were disorganized and had poor member turnout. Often new members would come to one or two events and never come back... but I did not see any successful matches being made and did not experience this myself through MSC.

    Of course MSC still got a paid membership for the contract term so they don't really seem to care, and they can think (or willingly spin) the turnover rate as testimony of their success. They only seem interested in getting you to sign the contract (which you can't cancel) so they collect revenue $$$, and not really understanding or caring what is (not) happening at their events. Be smart.

    Complete waste of time and money. You pay a lot for the membership AND then pay for every activity. The activities were 2-3x the cost of doing it outside of this group. Most activities revolved around drinking alcohol or engaging in extreme sports. Although when I signed up, I was assured there were ppl my age (50s) there were 3 my age--2 women who lived 40+ miles away, and an ultra conservative man who didn't like women who worked or had opinions (his words). I would have been satisfied to make ONE friend. Didn't happen.

    I joined in 2019 after hearing advertisements on the radio that sounded appealing. I went to a couple of events that summer but there were no guys my age like I thought there would be. I went on a whale watching/dinner/kayaking event in Cape May that had about 20-25 people attending but still no interesting guys. The activities were ok but the host Betsy (or Becky?) seemed depressed and uninterested in people - when we went on the kayak portion of the day we actually ended up leaving another new member behind on the pier because he'd gone to the restroom and our guides had to go back for him. Our host made her way around asking people not to 'rat her out' - I later found out that she was not a company host, but another member acting as host and that this was common for events. I expected a much more professional operation based on their ads and a better selection of guys to socialize with like they make it look. Disappointment.

    Once they have your money they don't care about you or the events - MSC staff does not attend or run events and the monthly calendar they post is mostly recycled events from last month or year often with the wrong dates and details as if their secretary just copied and pasted it from the last time. One time the venue we were supposed to go to wasn't even open for business any more! Events are often duds due to lack of social leadership, cancelled due to lack of attendance, or screwed up due to lack of competence making reservations. Don't waste your money.

    They come off as nice people. Once you sign up and leave your credit card there are waivers and disclosures to sign just to officially sign up. You legit need an attorney just to give this a try. And when you don’t agree and try and cancel. Wow. Been months and still dealing with the issue. Hard pass on this anyone who reads my review. I assure you I had good intentions signing up, but hope this place shuts down. Like yesterday preferably so no one else has to deal with this.

    My experience with MSC was nothing but a disappointment. Their sales rep had told me there were many "young professionals" on Long Island using their service. Hopeful, I had tried it out. The first event I went to was only people over 40, and the second event I had wanted to go to I had found out it would be essentially the same crew of people. Now as a young professional in my mid-twenties if I wanted to meet people over the age of 40 I would hang out with my parents more. I filed a complaint to the company who told me I couldn't terminate my plan until my 6 month contract was up. That's crazy though - they promised a service of meeting young professionals to me in my area and couldn't deliver on that. What type of company is that?

    I'm paying for a service that I'm not happy with and not receiving based on what I was told - AND THEY WON'T LET ME CANCEL or get any type of refund. I did find a loophole and cancelled my credit card and claimed fraudulent charges to get out of my membership because it looks like the only way out of the contract is to "not pay" and they "revoke your membership". What a hassle. All in all, don't waste your time and money if you're under 30 or live on Long Island.

    My Experience... I heard the ad and it sounded just like me. I am 40 years old divorced and hate online dating. I like most, read reviews some really good some not so good. I decided there was enough good to dive in. I joined in October and to my surprise actually really enjoy it. There are 20 events per month usually Tuesday or Wednesday evening, every Friday night, Saturday and Sunday and sometimes two on Saturday. The events are fun and well organized, and I have made tons of friends and even dated. I like meeting people face to face it works better for me.

    Katy, is the event director and anytime I have emailed she has returned it. Getting her by phone can be difficult, but there are 600 members in New York alone. They also have a member care section and they respond to that within 24 hours. It's hard meeting people these days and if online doesn't work for you this is worth taking a chance!

    Well, my MSC experience is very sad since I signed up for this website because the announcement I heard on the radio I thought I could go out and share with safe people, and which it was already perfect. I have several years with My Social Calendar, but now with the new event coordinator New York even I can't never talk. I could talk, this person who is now does not even answer the text and when she does it is two or three weeks later.

    On the other hand the page that you can see on the website does not even have a place where you can contact them in case you need to communicate with them. Pretty suspicious truth. Also when you go to see the activities that exist during a month you can see that the calendar is almost empty, that this means that they get $ 75 dollars from a bank account just for nothing. I sent several messages to the NY coordinator and I'm still waiting for an answer. As there was never an answer I was forced to call my bank and block them forever.

    I will admit, I had a healthy skepticism. While I am aware that MSC is not a dating site I was beginning to wonder if my social skills were fading. After being married for 24 years I was not prepared for how challenging it is to meet people. People have their guard up online and in public. I was getting tired of the pursuit. After a number of unfruitful online dating site attempts not to mention wasted investments I was considering a sabbatical from dating/socializing.

    After less than two months at MSC I have met well over 20 like minded people - people that enjoy doing things, socializing and being friendly. The mere fact that the initial social awkwardness - no need for a "come online" - is eliminated allows for actual conversations. Conversations with a number of these new "friends" have continued outside of the group as well as advanced plans for attending future events. To this point I have only attended 4 events. Even had a chance to Host one. At this time I already have 5 events planned for January. There always seem to be plenty of opportunities. Joining MSC has already paid for itself. It was like joining the real 3D world after spending too much time staring at a screen. I am looking forward to the spring already to experience the activities outside.

    I was told about this site after a string of bad dates during an already stressful time. Did the phone interview where I was pressured into signing up right then and there so that I could get a discount rate for 6 months (60 something dollars) You might find it strange that I don't know how much the discounted rate was right? That's cause I never got it, I've been charged $75 every month. I decided it's not worth it trying to fight them on this; we'll get back to this later.

    I hated the way the site is run because I literally said I don't have a lot of time to go to meet ups and was talked around cause "With this deal even if you go to nothing for 3 months it still makes sense!" There weren't very many events I liked and EVERYTHING needed more money, it's either go to a bar and pay for your drinks or sign up for an event and pay for the event, I'm sorry but for $75 a month I could find my own events to go to if I have to pay for them regardless. Then it's the events, it's basically the same thing every time maybe one different thing a month. Also I signed up for the NYC chapter....that would be held around NYC right? WRONG.

    Whoever was creating these events either has no clue how hard/long it would take to get to the events that were planned or just knew something we didn't because the amount of things that were over an hour away was ridiculous. Speaking of over an hour away, I was happy to hear there would be some hiking events....EVERY SINGLE ONE was held in the same park on Long Island and it's impossible to get there without driving (and then also paying for parking at the park) or Ubering, so still paying for the "free" hiking event, I was waiting for some sort of "walk through central park" thing and it NEVER HAPPENED, you want to hike you find a way to get to long island.

    Next is the people. I don't mind making friends older than me, but for all the events I went to I've seen only 4 other people in their 20's. They said they do a criminal record scan or something? Don't know if they do cause a man at least 20 years my senior went to the group message that was sent us with our photo of finishing an escape room, figured out which my number was based on area code cause at one point we were talking about how long it would take us all to get home and started texting me. I'm sorry but I don't feel safe when that happened so I don't know how they do this screen but it's not working. And as with most things there more woman than men. Then there's all the no shows at events so a restaurant trip that was supposed to be 15 people turns into an awkward dinner for 4 and things like that, and just the people not really mingling or knowing what to talk about with the big age gaps not helping.

    Remember me not wanting to fight them about money? Yah, I finally found someone contact through the site and I said how much I hated the service and that I want to cancel my subscription. "You can only cancel when your 6 months are up." "Yes please do." Well my 6 month were up...and I was charged again. I go on the site and contact them again, month after that I'm still charged again. I call my credit card company and have them dispute these charges, well after this finally when I go on MSC it doesn't let me view a calendar, finally I'm free! NOPE, WAS JUST CHARGED AGAIN even though now I can't even look at the calendar. I'll probably be fighting this $75 for the rest of my life because there's literally no way to contact anyone and have them stop charging you so keep and eye on that credit card bill!

    I am sorrowfully disappointed in My Social Calendar (MSC). I am a traveller who has been a part time resident in the US for the past year. MSC seemed to be the answer to my situation in meeting new people. I immediately signed up for the promises upon a phone call from a very persuasive and understanding (married) MSC sales person. At that time I was not able to sign up for any events until I gave over my credit card information in which I so eagerly did hearing the advertisement on the radio and reading online. Who doesn’t want more friends? Especially when trying to establish yourself in a place that is not your home. When payment was received from my account, none of the events were available. So I persevered in hope that the next month would be different. Disappointing.

    The following month I was travelling and unable to commit in advance to any of the offered events. The month after, MSC severed all communication with me. I was not sent the monthly email, I was not contacted at all by them and although I could log into the calendar, there was nothing of interest or availability. I was able to sign up for one single event in the first three months. But not knowing the area, I found it was 1 and 3/4 hours from me. I was not wishing to make friends so far away and subsequently cancelled. The payments continued to be made to MSC via my credit card for the remainder of the six months.

    The promise from MSC is that they will contact you after six months. No one contacted me. Not even an email to let me know when the calendar was published so that I could plan for the events. I was charged an additional three months beyond the six months after my commitment contract. MSC offer no phone number to call. There is no way to contact MSC if you have issues, My experience with MSC is that is it a scam. They took more from me than I pledged and there is no customer service whatsoever. I strongly advise any likely participants to look elsewhere for social outlet. Also I have never seen on the calendar any advertised events such as cooking classes or hot air ballooning. Overall what I have seen is meet ups in bars/restaurants and walks in public places. Nothing outstanding and out of the ordinary about MSC in the planned events.

    I experienced the rudest display of customer "service" no one should have to experience. I was in a place of transition from a divorce and was interested in getting out there again. I made an appointment with my social calendar and the saleswoman, whose name I can't recall, explained the program with the speed of a rapid disclaimer at the end of an infomercial. She also said if her husband ever left her it would be the first thing she would do ---- which I found a bit odd.

    As she got into the financials and I was finally able to respond, I said I "would think about it". Her immediate response without even a pause, was "well think about it means no". She indicated you go do whatever you do to socialize now. Absolutely shocking behavior...insulting, arrogant and completely unwarranted. I was a potential customer, in a vulnerable place, I might add...who cares if I wanted to consider the offer further..the customer is always right.

    The experience with My Social Calendar, was something that I would not recommend. There were charges I was told by the Caller Rhonda that were supposed to be one time that became continual. I was supposed to be charged a membership fee that I was told only one time and a monthly fee. I ended up getting both charges and I called to get this corrected. The customer service was not understanding and I was not treated as a valued customer. I don't like being mislead, and the customer service team seemed to not care. I was locked in and the contract was something that made me feel like a number. I felt so awful at how I was not valued that I had to leave. I mean being locked in a contract is not enjoyable, it was not customer first.

    I went to two events, first was at very expensive hotel that did not present much for icebreaking, the second was at a dive bar. These people I came in contact with were of means and I'm still on a budget. I felt My Social Calendar doesn't give you the chance to try it out, you sign up and you feel like it's a used car sales. I came out of loneliness and I left in debt. Currently I have arranged payments to get this behind me. I say this review, because I paid 600, and now I'm working out arrangements to pay the 2500 left to get this behind me! I feel that a social experience, should not be something that hurts you economically. As you can see I'm not happy and I warn anyone I know, to avoid this contract for felt not treated fairly.
