Thanks for asking the question; I hadn't noticed that we guys were weaker at remembering faces. (Typical man, right?)
Apparently, it's so. I found a Time online article on this, which said:
"In lab settings, women routinely outperform men in facial-recognition skills, both in terms of speed and reliability. Imaging scans have shown that part of the reason is that men rely only on the right side of the brain in summoning up images of a face they've seen before, while women recruit from both hemispheres — literally doubling the brainpower.
"Now, research from York University in Toronto has added a wrinkle to the existing wisdom. It's not just women whose brains are so nimble, the investigators have determined; it's gay men too."

If you see any movie... and see women's expressions; they actually check everything around them and make a comment about it.

Nature and evolution made their wording thinnier and eloquent. We men are more practical. Just in the way we shake hands and salute our peers, you see women more attentive than men.
I have no problem remembering faces, I just never know what name to put to them!

Why Do Men Think Women With Bigger Lips Are More Beautiful?

Why is it men don't pick up on subtle hints from women?They do, but they ignore them? They don't really listen? They don't care? Or women really have to be straight forward at the risk of injuring some of men's feelings, which usually women are trying to avoid by giving the subtle hints?
