Shoulda I ask him to the Winter Formal?

There is this one boy in my 8th Grade class who i have liked for over a year now. He acts like he hates me but he gives signs that he likes me (staring at me, smiling, looking away when i look at him) and his friends say he likes me. I want to ask him to the Winter Dance that is happening in about a week but don’t know if i’m making the right choice or how to go about doing it. I don’t feel comfortable talking to him myself because i’m very shy so i would have someone else ask for me. What are some ways I could ask him, what should I say, and do you think he likes me?
(PS. I would appreciate it if you’d answer the other questions i have posted too)
