Let's start with the obvious, LoL is a game and if you aren't having fun, then you shouldn't play. That said, when I go on losing streaks, I just keep re-queuing. You're bound to eventually get a good team, but until you hit ranked, it's very hit or miss.
One thing I do when I know I'm in a lost match where my teammates won't surrender is to focus on an element of my game play and really grind it out. My two favorites recently have been last hitting and ward placement/up time, but only you know your weaknesses.
One thing you should consider, if you are losing regardless of who you play or who you play with, then you might want to rethink your game. I don't know you, so I can't give direct criticism, but sometimes you have to look at the common denominator when focusing on a problem.
I would start by getting a VOD of a player you really like and watching it for analysis purposes. Really focus on when and how they do things. Then, record yourself playing with XSplit or something similar and watch it. Are you doing things like the pro player? Do you have the same CS or ganks/assists or other important role specific metric? If not, then ask yourself what isn't going right and fix it. Granted, eventually you will want to develop your own style, but until you are skilled enough to do that, emulate whomever you can! Pros do things for good reason and you should mimic those behaviors until you understand them.
Just my two cents!
