look up any word, like fleek:
 
1.
Religious or not, someone who often unexpectedly becomes a source of inspiration and support at a time when you need it most.
Someone suffering seemingly endless grief feels unexpectedly comforted by the sympathetic acts, presence, or encouragement of another, the "earth angel."

2.
Name inspired by a dorky oldies song by The Temptations.

Good friend or significant other of a nonreligious person.

People with religion can have something to believe in, think that angels are watching over them.

For those who don't have that, and earth angel is simply someone to believe in.

You find everything about them beautiful, from the sound of thier laughter to thier every mannerism, though to someone else they seem completely averdage. It's someone you trust, and can't imagine being without. Someone who understands your mind.
Earth angel- The one who's shoulder you can snot on when you're crying, and the hand holding yours in the dark.
