Did you put it up because you think it makes you look desirable?If you also manage to take/find one where you yourself look great, then that makes for a fantastic main photo.

The thought that this is what you normally look like and all the other pictures must have been taken from very flattering angles just sticks, even if only subconsciously.
This is especially true if all the photos in-between did not offer a clear view of you.
At the very least your main picture should offer a clear, unobstructed view of your face.
