Well my problem is this:

When i go on normal (blind pick) queue i let the team pick first so i get the type of champ the team will need to be complete because people dont usually pick support or tanky support so i normally pick one (Leona, Sejuani or Dr. Mundo even tough some peopole tell me Mundo's main role is not tanky support i do my best and it works), if not i play Soraka or Janna. the point is my game goes ok because when i pick tanky supporters i always get my carry the perfect kill and grow my gold up with assists and rush on turtle shell & philosopher's and then get my other items with the cash i get for the assists and that but this sounds so perfect that nobody can even see whats the problem right?

The problem is that i almost ALWAYS get a ****ty carry to lane with and when i go on their carry to try and get a kill along with mine I DIE because my carry is not skilled or in other words a NOOB and that **** bothers me because i could've picked a carry and maybe the lane could go nice but NO! i picked a support to make my team complete and this M@!#3RF$ER goes all efin up the strategy, doing nothing and auto attacking them minions so their jungler can come and own the s#!t out of us... and that really pisses me off because i mean im not the best player ever but i know my game aint NOOB... well thats it.

so tellme what to do when that happens? please....

You need to get used to stupid people in LoL.The only advice i can give is to find a buddy to lane with.

This is what you do, if you have a bad carry, play passive, don't even attempt for kills, just zone the enemy so your bad carry has a chance to at least do something when they get farmed.

If your carry is good, you can coordinate with them to grab kills, but most randoms won't just KNOW you're going in for a kill. Zone the opponent, make them afraid to come get CS, keep your carry healthy, bodyblock for them, your job is to protect the carry and let them farm. if you grab kills thats wonderful it puts you all the more ahead and 2 or 3 kills can help snowball your lane, but they aren't required, and often I'd like it if my support would just zone so I can farm, I could care less about getting the double kill so long as my opponents aren't getting CS anyways, yes it's good to put them behind in levels, but an ADC without items is just as bad as an ADC 2 or 3 levels down.

There are a lot of possible ways, either you take a support with high mobillity (Nunu for example) and try to aggresive ward their jungle to avoid lane ganks or you get a aggresive support (Leona, or Blitz) to make it really easy for your lane-partner to kill them and snowball the lane. Champions like Soraka aren't really strong in this case as you have less control over the enemy.

If you have any other questions I will put my shameless selfpromotion link here:

if your carry doesn't follow your plays there are two possible reasons.

A: you're making a play when the carry simply can't follow. If graves just used quickdraw to get away from the enemies and then you stun them when he's like 20 feet away he can't followup. ect.

B: they just want to farm. If thats the case just harass the enemies, don't try and get kills.

You could possibly get a duo partner who plays ad carry..?
Some people play solo games and magically find a carry/support they did well with and start playing together, or you can find someone on mobafire to play with/some friend you know irl to play with etc. I mean this is if you enjoy playing support. Don't play it if you don't like it, don't get bullied into it :P Also I suggest you play draft games, you'll have to get used to them eventually if you plan on getting ranked.

Yelling YOLO in allchat instead of pinging works for me as well.
