In days of old this is a much debated topic.
Enoch (pbuh) is the father of Noah (pbuh) it is said (in this school of understanding) probably where the person you are talking with is coming from that in Enochs (pbuh) time there are angelic beings that defied G-d and descended of their own will.
It is said the reason for their turning from G-d is because they found the daughters of men attractive and together with them produced offspring.
The beings that chose to desend are often called watchers or archons depending what religion you are. they taught men some mystery’s of the universe i guess science, horoscopes and magic.
Their descendants are the Nephilim from a today bible they should have been wiped out in the flood.
But coming from above there sprits influence may no be ended until the last days of this realm we see. If you drift to Islam and pagan Arabia you may see them as Jinn or genii.
In Islamic religion some re submit and some do not.
I ponder G-ds use of their spiritual influence on the Magi.
I listen once to a Jewish woman (unfortunately i cant recall the sect) she wore a wig to cover her hair.
Christian women are called to wear head covering in prayer assuming they see the bible as G-ds instruction to man.
The great apostle Paul (pbuh) was Jewish and it his teaching women do this. Islamic women are encouraged to Vail their hair.
Three monotheistic religions all called to the same call.
Of course lots of us today pick and choose from the books to make a god that suites us in our society.
In western pagan society women do all sorts of things to their to denounce or “improve” what G-d has given them. this lack of acceptance of what G-d gives IMO chimes the descent of the watchers influence.
I dont offer this post with any authority to speak of truth so please dont any one start debate with me but i have personally sought this from prayer inspiration so am happy to discuss further. Please also remember i am running of memory for things that are not key importance in my Fathers calling to me.
My approach to the conversation with your friend would have been an eager please teach me of this you say approach. You could have both sat down and read together. This may have even opened a door for you to share some of scripture that really speaks to you. This in turn would have given you a common sharing to take this person to Our Father in prayer as Yeshua (pbwh) taught.
I avoid your wrong i am right in my personal contacts with people at times, i prefer to share and let G-d show us who is right and who is wrong. G-d knows best. Not to be against you but i get from your post you were not sure of your no.
For me personnel the book of Enoch (pbuh) was helpful in understanding people and the world around me. (Our Father is not constrained by time as we see it) i did not read it with an eye it is G-ds authoritative word but to seek what is of it G-ds word. But that is how i read all writings.
Bless you all pray well and stay well.
