Riven tips needed

I don't know if it's bad luck or what but I can never seem to do even decently with riven in normal games
it seems like i keep getting matched up with champs that she has a difficult time with or people that practically main top (im usually a mid or bot player)

naturally playing against bots is too easy, i'm not going to learn anything from that anymore
but it seems like if i play aggressively like various guides tell me to, i die because whoever im matched against just knows their champ better. if i play passively, i'm denied cs and still die even on my turret?

like i said idk if its bad luck but its kinda hard to learn anything if im constantly being stomped on
it also doesnt help that i'm usually stuck with really bad junglers too

i try to get auto attacks in after every skill cast to utilize her passive, using my shield and r at the start of fights
but champs like jarvan dont even allow me to get a few hits in before im dead

ive seen people really own at riven and i want to be good at her too so when i'm forced to play top i dont have to pick teemo or akali because i dont think they're as good as actual bruisers but i know how to play them at least

tldr: I cant practice riven when the tops im matched against counter her or outrank me in skill every game.
is it just bad luck or is there something im doing wrong?

You should be able to win your lane as Riven, here try this it might help and I probably wouldn't type up anything different anyway.
