What does "down to earth" mean?

Hi, stranger!

Ok, so English is not my native language and whenever a guy uses the words "you seem so down to earth" to describe me or compliment me, I get confused as to what it really means. I know it might go along the lines of being mature but I need more insight.

Thanks in advance!

  • It means something like you're reasonable and understanding mostly and easy to talk to, or that's the best I can think of to describe it.

    • I'm very chatty, so that might be it. Thanks for the response!

    • read my post... im English and we say it all the time about real people. another term is salt of the earth meaning they will do any thing for anyone without wanting praise
