    ... after scratching my head, playing with a balloon, or
    walking barefooted on a rug, gives me a little shock.

    What you doing is separtaing charges, they unite as soon as they can. The voltage can be considerable (you can make small lightnings), but the current is low, so not much danger of an actual electrocution.

    You can "ground" yourself, by taking a conductive metall pin and contact the ground contact of your electrical system (or a metallic doorframe or whatever). You can also put a nail through your rubber boot.

    And you can look up this if you are interested:

    I was going to write "don´t worry it isn´t a sin, you´ll find someone eventually", but then i read this electricity stuff.

    Maybe it is a sign of real love, love toward yourself.
