I would list the names vertically.

Justin

Julie

Jamie

Matt

Ryan

Roland.

Now pair up one at a time. For example

Justin/Julie

Justin/Jamie

Justin/Matt

Justin/Ryan

Justin/Roland

Then go to the next one; i.e., Julie.

Omit Julie/Justin because you already have that one.

Julie/Jamie

Julie/Matt

Julie/Ryan

Julie/Roland

etc.
