To answer my own questions:
Yes, I went to prom
I had a great time
I'm still in touch with my date after nearly 30 years. We remain friends to this day.

I went to my prom. No, I didn't really have a good time at all. I didn't have a date as nobody wanted to go with me (dates weren't required but it still would have been nice to have one). My friends were mostly busy with their dates so I was alone most of the time. I didn't get to dance with any guys even though I asked them. Maybe I was too forward. My brother was there and he felt bad for me, and tried to get a couple of his friends to dance with me but it didn't work.
I had saved up over $200 for the ticket, a dress, shoes, makeup, and hairstyling. My parents helped me but that's still a lot of money for a 17 year old. Turned out to be a colossal waste of time and money.
I went home and cried. In hindsight, that was probably an overreaction. I sometimes wish I could do it over again, but it is what it is.
