Yeah Destiny is definitely a game that is much better when played with friends. If you ever want to give it another go let me know! I play pretty regularly and I'd be happy to carry you through some of the new stuff. They just released a new expansion that totally changed the whole game for the better. One of those changes being that all new content updates will be free.
If anyone ever stumbles across this thread and wants to play add me. My gamertag is Epic Gnar
