Why is car stalling on cold start ups when I step on the gas? on 2002 Volkswagen Golf

When starting cold I have to crank it several times before it will finally start. After it starts, if I give it gas it will immediately stall. If I let the car idle (after cranking many times it will finally start) it will usually idle then stall. I will crank again and it will idle and usually after about 30 seconds it will finally start to idle normally and then I can step on the gas and all is fine. But if I step on the gas when car is first idling before waiting about 30 seconds, it will cause it to stall.
