Gravity is an ATTRACTIVE force, not REPULSIVE…  The EARTH pulls you towards it.  The easy explanation is that it is one of the four types of forces, including the Strong Nuclear force, the Weak Nuclear force and the Electromagnetic force. That's probably what you learned in High School. One of the intermediate explanations is that gravity is described by the  general theory of relativity (proposed by Albert Einstein) which describes gravity not as a force, but as a consequence of the curvature of space-time caused by the uneven distribution of mass.  That's about as far as I go. There are more modern explanations based on particle physics, quantum mechanics, and quantum field theory, but that's over my head…
