To be or not to be?

I am seriously considering going vegetarian.  At least for 30 days to try it out and see if it is possible as a lifestyle change for me.  Anyone out there who is vegetarian and could give me some advice?  My biggest concerns are as follows:

Am I going to be able to find enough HEALTHY choices (I’m slightly scared of ‘mock meat’ and am not sure if I will be able to get enough to make me full)

My boyfriend is not a vegetarian and although he said he supports it, how realistic is it to cook a meat meal AND a veggie meal. 

How affordable is being a vegetarian?

I actually like meat, like the taste, and love dairy products aka cheese (vegan is out).

My main reason for becoming a vegetarian is based on the terrible treatment of animals killed for our consumption each year.  I am a huge animal lover, like love everything about animals.  And I know I can’t stop it from happening, but I feel like it is one of the only things I can do to personally make a difference, no matter how small it is in the big picture. 

Give me a shout if ANYONE is in the same boat as me!!!
