Just had a date cancel on me and I'm taking it super personal. I'm in my 30s, attractive, great career and city, but I feel like I will never find someone who will accept my non neurotypical ways...

Hey everyone! I recently graduated this past December and started my current role January 24th. Just this morning I had a recruiter from Meta reach back out to me about a role I applied too last month. Should i schedule an interview with the recruiter? What if it goes well? Would it look bad if I quit my current position to take this role if I end up getting an offer? One reason I would want to switch is because the pay would most likely be a lot higher at Meta then in my current position.
