why is it so hard to make friends?

I'm non lds and just moved to Utah county. I'm having a hard time making friends. I do drink a few beers on the weekends with my husband and smoke, nothing illegal though. I'm really laid back, does anyone else have this problem?

Yes. I was raised Mormon and am no more. In Utah, somehow everyone is either LDS or not LDS. You are not alone. Not at all. My suggestion would be to seek non-LDS social group, such as: a different religion, or an organization or group that focuses around some interest or issue that is important to you. Don't apologize for not being LDS, and don't get sucked into the LDS church either. :) There are some open-minded LDS people, they may become your friends, but I would suggest not ever letting LDS friends believe that you are interested in their religion, because then it is hard to tell if their overtures are genuine friendship or if they are evangelizing.
