OK,your family name (surname) is Wang, right? So Bin must be what we call your first name! If you just change the i to an e, you get Ben, which is a very fashionable name in the West and should be nice and easy for your friends to remember. It's short for Benjamin or Bennet, if you prefer a longer form. Another name that might work for you is Tim, once again, short for Timothy but it doesn't have to be. Or Joseph, with its short form - Joe - which sounds very Chinese.

I wonder why you feel the need for an English name. Your Chinese names are easy for us to pronounce, so leaving them alone would be just as simple for us and much more convenient for you.
