I'm trying to make a good Riley riddle, but this is my first time, so please tell me if this is good or where I can improve on.

The riddle goes like this:

The prefix is just before you,

The suffix rolls before you.

The infix sounds like a female name,

And with the word you don't care whether I'm lame.

Hint 1:

The answer is not a name.

Hint 2:

The answer can be a noun and a verb.

Hint 3:

The prefix can be found in the riddle and this hint.

    $\begingroup$ Just a note, when giving hints, be sure to wait for quite a while (like a few hours or even a day) as there are many users with different time zones that haven't seen your question yet :D @OmegaKrypton $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 7 '18 at 2:25

Based on @AHKieran answer I would think that the answer is

Prejudice

Prefix

Pre is in the hint and just standing in the first lane before us

Infix

Judi (maybe even Judice) sounds like a female name

Suffix

Thanks to @AHKieran dice that you role in front of you.

And with the word you don't care whether I'm lame.

prejudice 'preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience.' -> it's your opinion so you don't care if it's incorrect or lame.

Partial:

Prefix:

I think the prefix is T/Te/Tea, it says "just before you", I took this to mean "just before U" in the alphabet, which is the letter T.

Infix:

I imagine the infix is a female name with a different spelling, not sure which.

Suffix:

Perhaps the suffix is dice or die? As you roll them in front of you when playing a game.

    $\begingroup$ You got the suffix right, but not the prefix and the infix. Keep it up! $\endgroup$ – Omega Krypton Sep 10 '18 at 8:32
